Abstract

Robert Burns Fellow 1969: Hone Tuwhare (1922-2008)

Hone Tuwhare was born in Northland in a bilingual home where he was able to indulge his love of reading. A boilermaker by trade, Tuwhare began to write in earnest in 1956 and published his first collection, No Ordinary Sun, in 1964 – it sold out in a matter of weeks, and was reprinted several times. Tuwhare’s tenure in 1969 was a ‘mini-Burns’, part of a Centennial commemoration of the Robert Burns Fellowship. It ran from June to October. The publication, Come Rain Hail, was the result of this tenure, his first time as Fellow at Otago. It was printed in the Bibliography Room, attached to the English Department. The cover design is by Tuwhare’s friend, Ralph Hotere.
