Abstract

Robert Burns Fellow 1965: Janet Frame (1924-2004)

Janet Frame was the first woman to take up the Robert Burns Fellowship; she had been invited to do so. Charles Brasch wrote in two journal entries for July 1965 that his friend Janet wrote to ‘live’ and to ‘escape’. And write she did. During the year, she finished the manuscripts for Adaptable Man (1965), and State of Siege (1966); and wrote 100,000 words for The Rainbirds. She also wrote 60 of the poems included in A Pocket Mirror. Two of the poems from said volume have distinct Burnsian and Dunedin themes respectively. Note Brasch’s comments in pencil.
