AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Ikin argues that Rudd was not a mere bush yarner, but a writer with some artistic merit as seen in his careful construction of paragraphs and the combination of the 'hyperbole of everyday speech and the images that express an individual perception'. In effect, Rudd spins yarns which are precisely constructed and alien to the rough, loosely constructed form from which they derive. But, in conclusion, Ikin acknowledges that Rudd's creative skills were not up to the examination of psychology and ethics that his stories frequently touched.
