Selected Poems, Paperback / softback Book

Selected Poems Paperback / softback

Edited by Paul Millar


James K. Baxter (1926-1972) is one of the twentieth-century's most remarkable poets, yet he has been too little regarded of outside his native New Zealand.

In this innovative selection, Paul Millar, the expert on Baxter, gathers his most powerful and celebrated poems - political, lyrical and spiritual - with some of his more unexpected writings, including previously unpublished work.

The book is in four sections, representing the stages from Baxter's early published work to his last vivid, inspiring and notorious years as a guru of the counter-culture.

Each section has a biographical introduction. Notes, and a glossary covering words and references unique to New Zealand, and a full bibliography, complete this essential celebration of Baxter's poetry.
