Robert Burns Fellow 2003: Sarah Quigley (b. 1967)

Sarah Quigley shared the other half of the Burns Fellowship year with Nick Ascroft. She was a graduate of Oxford University where she had completed her thesis on the life and works of Charles Brasch, one of the founders of the Robert Burns Fellowship. The same year that Quigley arrived in Dunedin for her tenure, the embargo was lifted from all Brasch’s papers and diaries held at the Hocken Library. She soon made herself at home in the Library’s reading room to research his extensive archives. Here is Quigley’s essay, ‘Towards a Biography’, which formed part of Enduring Legacy, a publication that came out as a celebration of the embargo lifting. Quigley currently lives in Berlin.
