Works about this Work

'The Life, the Loves, of that Dark Race' : The Ethnographic Verse of Mid-Nineteenth-Century Australia John O'Leary , 2007 single work criticism
— Appears in: Australian Literary Studies , May vol. 23 no. 1 2007; (p. 3-17)
Defining 'ethnographic verse' as 'a loose, heterogeneous sug-genre that mixed poetry with anthropology, or ethnology as Victorians called it' O'Leary considers examples within the context of similar works from the Unites States and New Zealand, arguing that these poetic epics have literary and historical significance.
Myth, Melbourne, McCrae J. J. Healy , 1978-1989 single work criticism
— Appears in: Literature and the Aborigine in Australia 1770- 1975 1989; (p. 76-90)
In this chapter Healy examines Frederick Sinnett's review in 1958 of fiction fields of Australia, where he rejected the idea of the Aborigine as a valid subject for Australian literature. Healy looks at the difficulties of constructing Aboriginal cosmology into poetry or other prose by white 19th Century authors. Focus is given to several works of George Gordon McCrae.
