Dunedin became the eighth UNESCO City of Literature in December 2014, on the same day as Prague, Heidelberg and Granada.

Dunedin is the ancestral home of the Kāi people and the second-largest city in the South Island of New Zealand, with a population of approximately 125,000. In 1848, a new wave of Scottish migration brought the literature of Burns and the Bible to Dunedin.

Today, many published and talented writers, poets, illustrators, lyricists, book designers and playwrights draw their inspiration from European traditions and work alongside other writers from Maori, Pacific and Asian backgrounds.

Charles Brasch (1909–1973) was a Dunedin poet, art collector and philanthropist, and the editor for 20 years of the literary journal Landfall, which he founded in 1947.

‘Shoriken’ is from his sixth collection, Home Ground, published in 1974.

His work was first projected in Krakow in December 2015, as is shown below.
