HeadworX republishes forgotten NZ poet Robert J Pope

Friday, December 21, 2012 by Mark Pirie

My publishing company HeadworX has just released a new edition of early New Zealand author and songwriter Robert J Pope's poetry, King Willow, a substantial edition with accompanying introduction, notes and bibliographical material.

Robert J Pope (1865-1949) is a Wellington poet of interest for his poems covering the two world wars and the All Blacks "Invincibles" tour of 1924/25 as well as suburban satires of Wellington city-life (fashion, sport, politics and culture 1902-44) that still ring true today.

See the book information page here for more details.

Copies can be purchased from me directly using the contact form on this website.

A report on the book launch was on Beattie's Book Blog, 6 December 2012.
