AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Thomson considers Clara Morison in terms of the literary models of Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte. She sees the theme of 'respectability' broadened by being examined in the colonial context. Spence's Autobiography is not only the story of the author's life and an account of the Scots in Australia, but also a document charting the development of a colony. Thomson outlines Spence's concerns for social justice and reform which are reflected in this selection of her non-fiction writings.
