              Home, Away, Elsewhere
               

              Home, Away, Elsewhere (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Rapatahana, Vaughan; Norcliffe, James; Eggleton, David

              HOME, AWAY, ELSEWHERE is a poetry collection in three parts. Home is events, situations, descriptions, and attitudes about Hong Kong, which is now Vaughan's home. Away contains poems about events, situations, descriptions, and attitudes about Aotearoa (New Zealand), in particular... from a Maori (marginalised) perspective and also about all the other places where Vaughan has lived - The Republic of Nauru, Brunei Darussalam, The People's Republic of China, Australia, The United Arab Emirates (UAE), The Philippines. Elsewhere is emotions (the entire gamut), relationships (marriages, family, friends), deaths (parents, children), reflections - some wry, etcetera - not specifically tied to physical locations. Vaughan does not write to any set forms/formats but attempts to utilise type-face/shape/what a poem looks like on a page to reflect what he attempts to say. He writes to stay sane. These poems express what I am, and what I also think people I see are, within. They are not mere academic or literary exercises. They are lived experiences, I guess.

              Vaughan Rapatahana's poems are replete with references to his own Indigenous heritage in Aotearoa-New Zealand and his current exiled status as a resident also of both Hong Kong and Pampanga, Philippines. Indeed themes of alienation, marginalization, alternatives scream through hi...s lines - apposite for a man with a Ph.D in existential literary criticism and the work of the author of The Outsider, Colin Wilson.
