James K. Baxter is one of New Zealand’s most celebrated poets
James K. Baxter is one of New Zealand’s most celebrated poets. Born in Dunedin, Baxter started writing poetry at an early age; his first collection of poetry, Beyond the Palisade (1944), was critically acclaimed although he was just 17 years old and a student at the University of Otago when it was published. He followed his initial success with two further volumes of poems: Blow, Wind of Fruitfulness (1948) and the long poem Hart Crane: A Poem (1948). Baxter enrolled at Wellington Teachers’ College in 1951.
How did I get to this age without having read - or even heard of - James Baxter? That he was a New Zealander dead now roughly 30 years does not seem a sufficient excuse. The poems - and there are very many of them - range from folksy, often amusing ballads to real soul-and mind-stoppers, poems that block the reader's ordinary paths of thought and perception. Mr. Baxter was an Anglican who converted to Roman Catholicism - New Zealand's Anglican Prayer Book is rich with his prayers.
