Charles Brasch

Countries which attempt any widespread suppression cut themselves off from what is most alive in the thought of their time, and may be in danger.

No society can flourish when it is stifled intellectually.

(from The Universal Dance)


Charles Brasch, poet and supporter of the arts, was founding editor of the Landfall. His library of 7,500 books in Special Collections at Otago University and his archives (28 linear metres) are housed at the Hocken Library.
