This is an auction for JAMES K BAXTER by W H Oliver.

“James K Baxter was a seminal figure in New Zealand’s literary world and exercised an extraordinary influence on society in his relatively short life. W H Oliver, a friend of Baxter from the 1940s until his death, provides a vivid portrayal of the poet’s life in this generously illustrated biography. He chronicles Baxter’s struggles and search for fulfilment in his religious beliefs and relationships. Above all Oliver emphasises the importance of the poetry that is Baxter’s legacy to New Zealand literature today. JAMES K BAXTER: A PORTRAIT is a fascinating and lively introduction to a remarkable figure, and a critical insight into the times in which he lived.”
