Poet Biography

Born in Yorkshire, Bayldon emigrated to Queensland in 1891 after having travelled extensively in Europe, the United States and India. A poet before he left England, he shows the influence of the Victorian Romantic tradition, although his verse does experience a change of tone from romantic to realist once in Australia, where he soon came to notice as a freelance journalist and a Bulletin poet.
