Works about this Work

Australian Poetry Lovers' Society Adelaide [Meeting Report] A. Cumming , 1937 single work column
— Appears in: All About Books , 13 September vol. 9 no. 9 1937; (p. 145)
A brief report of the August meeting. Recitals included 'Irish Lords', Costello's 'Breaking of the Drought' and 'Men of the Mallee' by Clifford Collas. Guest was Dr. F. E. Rogers "an English poet" and translator.
Poetry in South Australia I. M. Foster , 1936 single work criticism
— Appears in: Desiderata , 1 August no. 29 1936; (p. 17-19)
'When I was asked to write this article, I was at once confronted with the difficulty which ultimately must assail every critic in a contribution such as this, not whether to be merely categorical, but to say whether or not there exists in South Australia a body of representative work in which may be found evidence of true poetry. Whether there has been in the verse that exists imagination, creativeness, a tradition, a culture, a direct living note, an expression in words of the beauty of nature, or the things that affect man's spirit and his life. I do not think there has. Such verse as has been written is largely ephemeral, external, and fugitive. It does not constitute, taken as a whole, a permanent and consolidated body of work, through which one might see the national spirit or ethos as one does in English, Irish, German, and French poetry.'
