Plume Of Bees: a Literary Biography of C. K. Stead considers the temperament Stead brings to his art, and, conversely, the idiosyncrasies and preoccupations that are revealed through his work. The inquiry begins with an account of his childhood to seek situations or influences that may have contributed to his talent and ambition. As Plume of Bees develops, it focuses on reasons for the extremes of Stead's reputation, and for the fact that his reception in Britain often differs from that in New Zealand. Relying mainly on resources in the public arena - Stead's many publications, talks, lectures and radio interviews, and his letters to Sargeson and Curnow lodged in the Alexander Turnbull Library - Judith Dell Panny's work shows a commitment to impartiality and probity.
