Publishing under a number of variations on the pseudonym, some poems are probably the work of Lynx
, as the earliest selections appear as part of the 'Echoes of the Day' column in the Tasmanian Mail
. Later works appear in the Clipper
during the 1890s (mostly under the name 'Pleeceman X'). Pieces are idiosyncratic, 'phonetic renderings' of vernacular speech patterns, hence the obtuse titles. The pseudonym - and style - also appears to have been popular elsewhere (see the entry for Pleecemen X
), however the events and personalities depicted throughout the various works indicate that the author (or authors) whose poetry appears in the Mail
possessed substantial local knowledge and were therefore 'locals' themselves.
