Paul Dolphin is a Melbourne poet. He is a retired medical doctor who came from a radical background and whose experience as a general practitioner in a mainly disadvantaged area has given rise to many poems.
He has been published in Quadrant, Island Melbourne Poets Union (MPU), and overseas, and has been a major prizewinner on several occasions in the MPU International Competition.
Since retiring Paul’s interests now lie in physics, consciousness studies, and philosophy. As a long-time sailor he has competed in many Bass Strait and Tasmanian races.
