Writers in Residence by Jenny Robin Jones

This book about twenty nineteenth-century New Zealand writers presents in human terms what it meant to be a writer in a strange new land. Unexpected people took to the pen; travellers recorded their adventures; soldiers, judges, civil servants burst into print. The writers include Joel Polack, William Colenso, Edward Jerningham Wakefield, Frederick Maning, John Logan Campbell, Samuel Butler, Lady Barker, and end with Blanche Baughan and Jessie Mackay.
While the book required considerable research, it aims to take these talented, entertaining and courageous characters out of the exclusive possession of the scholars by recreating them as ordinary people excited by their experiences and surprised to find themselves making history.
As the author says, ‘I hope to have captured something of the reality of the lives lived and to create a sense of this country as one inhabited by writers.’ An engaging and unusual book, Writers in Residence shows writing as a way in which a new place is explored and understood.
