Robert Burns Fellow 1966 and 1967: James K. Baxter (1926-72)

Like Janet Frame, James K. Baxter was Dunedin-born. His parents and extended family still lived in the city and surrounding area. His acceptance as Burns Fellow was a kind of homecoming after 20 years away, and he made the most of his two years. Baxter wrote about 90 poems and numerous plays; he gave lectures and wrote essays; he took part in protests of the Vietnam War, and spoke out against the University’s stance on mixed flatting in A Small Ode on Mixed Flatting. Lectures he gave during his tenure were printed in The Man on the Horse (1967). Here is James Bertram’s review of the work. In his own words, Baxter said ‘on the whole, I think I made an exemplary Burns Fellow.’
