Selected Poems of James K. Baxter free pdf By 1972, when James K Baxter died aged just 46, his colourful life and distinctive poetry had captured the imagination of New Zealanders as no literary figure before him. Selected Poems of James K Baxter, is a new generous and authoritative selection of Baxter's verse for general readers and students by New Zealand's leading Baxter scholar. With a range of poems from the 1940s, 1950s, 1960s and the Jerusalem period, full texts of major sequences 'Pig Island Letters' and the 'Jerusalem Sonnets', and key new poems directly from manuscript, Millar's selection reveals the breadth of Baxter's achievement, not merely its peaks - from the comic and bawdy to the political and devotional. Selected Poems of James K Baxter also includes an insightful introduction by Baxter expert Paul Millar and short prefaces to the four parts, plus four Baxter photos, useful notes, a glossary of Maori words and index.
