I have absolutely no idea who "Exile" was.
He first appeared in 1903 in the Perth Sunday Times
and for the next several years was a regular contributor to that
paper's columns, "Rhymer's
Refuge" "The Rhymer" and "Goldfields
Jingles and back Country Bits". These columns were edited by the
bastion of the "Times" and well known poetic identity "Dryblower"
While most of Exile's poetry definitely fits the "Bush
Poetry" genre, others are anything but; but then that was not
uncommon for poets of the era who's academic background would
have been very steeped in "British Classical Literature"
From his writings, it would appear that he came to the
West from Victoria, but other than that I have no knowledge of him.
If anyone can enlighten me as to just who he was I'd
