Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Widely considered to be the greatest poet New Zealand has produced, James K. Baxter (1926-1972) was full of contradictions: a poet who spent much of his time exercising a concern for society's outcasts; a man with intense loyalty to his country who frequently condemned its institutions; a devout convert to Roman Catholicism whose life did not follow many of the usual practices of the church. This volume is the definitive biography of James K. Baxter, a man whose life and ideas were central to the New Zealand experience.
