Abstract

Robert Burns Fellow 2000: James Norcliffe (b. 1946)

James Norcliffe reflects on his time as Burns Fellow: ‘I look back with considerable delight to my time as Burns Fellow. It seems, in retrospect, a magic time. The English faculty was welcoming and friendly as was the wider Dunedin literary community. I made many friends during my stay, and grew to love the city and its surrounds. The short walk through the botanical gardens from Knox [College] to my room at the University each morning was always a pleasure.
It was a most productive year. I did complete my designated project, a novel, “Nodding Donkeys”, but was not really satisfied with it (neither was my agent), and never sought publication. I completed a fantasy novel, “The Assassin of Gleam” which went on to win the Julius Vogel Award, and I wrote many poems, the bulk of which were collected into my fifth collection, “Along Blueskin Road” (2005). Incidentally, during my walks through the gardens I came upon a loblolly pine and this prompted my subsequent fantasy novel, “The Loblolly Boy”
.’
