Arthur H. Adams

a.k.a. Arthur Henry Adams

Author Code: OAHA

Born: Dec. 6, 1872 - Lawrence, New Zealand

Died: Mar. 4, 1936 - Sydney, Australia

Educated at Wellington Boy's College and Otago University where he received a BA in 1894, Adams published his first poem in Zealandia in 1890. For a time, he collaborated with Alfred f. Hill, the musician, on a comic opera. Adams then returned to Otago to study law, but left to enter a career in journalism. He continued, with some success, to write poetry and continued to work as a reporter for The Evening Post. In 1898, he moved to Australia which would remain his home thereafter. He produced some plays, but poetry seemed to be his prime interest. In 1900, working for the Sydney Morning Herald Adams was sent to China to report on the Boxer Rebellion, but he returned in 1901 with enteric fever. The following year he went to England, but suffered in poverty for the next three years. He published his first novel, Tussock Land, in 1904 and he returned to New Zealand in 1905. In 1910, he published Galahd Jones which received critical acclaim. From 1911 to 1917, he was the editor of the Sydney Sun. He wrote many patriotic poems during the First World War. Afterwards, he continued to have success, but his trip to England in 1927 to promote his plays was unsuccessful. He contracted septicemia and pneumonia in 1936 and died that year. His works include Maoriland and Other Verses (1899), The Nazarene (1902), London Streets (1906), The Knight of the Motor Launch (1913), Grocer Greatheart (1915), The Australian (1920), The Brute (1922) and A Man's Life (1929).
