Passport to hell : the story of James Douglas Stark, Bomber, Fifth Reinforcement, New Zealand Expeditionary Forces by Robin Hyde( Book )

27 editions published between 1936 and 2015 in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This man is the biggest, laziest, rottenest, most troublesome- And in the trenches he's one of the best soldiers I ever had.' Passport to Hell is the story of James Douglas Stark-Starkie-and his war. Journalist and novelist Robin Hyde came across Starkie while reporting in Mt Eden Gaol in the 1930s and immediately knew she had to write his 'queer true terrible story'. The result was greeted by John A. Lee, war veteran, author and politician, as 'the most important New Zealand war book yet published'. Hyde took the raw horrors, respites and reversals of Starkie's experiences and composed a work of literature much greater than a mere documentary of war. She portrays a man looting a dead man's money-belt and filching beer from the Tommies; attempting to shoot a sergeant in a haze of absinthe, yet carrying his wounded captain back across No Man's Land; a man recommended for the V.C. and honoured for his bravery - but also subject to nine courts martial. In its psychological acuity and emotional depth, Passport to Hell is one of the finest war books we have

The book of Nadath by Robin Hyde( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Book of Nadath is a long prose poem by well-known poet and novelist Robin Hyde which has remained unpublished for 60 years. Written in 1937, Hyde's last year in New Zealand, it is a sounding device for all the concerns which mark The Godwits Fly, A Home in This World and Nor the Years Condemn. Among Hyde's most brilliant works, it is a poem of exceptional lyric beauty and moving personal grief, and arguably the crowning achievement of her poetry. Nadath consists of 14 sections in which the central figure of a false prophet observes and is implicated in scenes ranging from the decolonising inheritance of New Zealand to the imminence of another war and possible conquest; but the moment of 1937 is its primary focus, the problem of how to articulate crisis - which writing voice best serves political and spiritual truth - is its enduring fascination. The publication of this poem, with the assistance of Leggott's introduction and textual notes, will significantly shift our assessment of Hyde's achievement

The book of Iris : a life of Robin Hyde by Derek Challis( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Brilliant, beautiful, difficult and doomed, Iris Wilkinson (known as the writer Robin Hyde) led a short, tumultuous and incredibly productive life. Here her story is told for the first time in a dramatic and deeply moving narrative. Researched by both authors from 1965 to 1971, it was written in a first draft by Iris Wilkinson's friend, Gloria Rawlinson; since Rawlinson's death in 1995 it has been revised and completed by Derek Challis, Wilkinson's son. It includes appalling accounts of hidden pregnancies, harsh experience as a solo mother, dependence on drugs, intimate acquaintance with sexism and poverty, mental breakdown, and a perilous trip to China in wartime. There are deep friendships and hurtful betrayals. Always there is a dedicated and determined commitment to writing. ..."--Jacket
