Works about this Work

Dick the Poet : 'Allegorical Tendencies' in Robbery under Arms James Dahlstrom , 2012 single work criticism
— Appears in: Antipodes , June vol. 26 no. 1 2012; (p. 41-45)
'Rolf Boldrewood's novel Robbery Under Arms is known for its action, adventure and frank depiction of life in Australia during the gold rush. It is also known for its didacticism, which critics tend to find disagreeable (Green 257; Rosenberg 488; Dowsley 75; Turner 240). Despite this recognition, the scholarship that explores the novel's didactic nature is limited to religious scholars like Veronica Brady, who suggests that Dick's narrative represents a surrender to cultural norms rather than an allegory symbolizing a genuine spiritual transformation (41). This paper, however, seeks to create a new discussion that will draw out the Christian-centered 'allegorical tendencies' in Robbery Under Arms.' (Author's introduction)
America, the Forbidden Fruit : Anti-American Sentiment in Robbery under Arms James Dahlstrom , 2011 single work criticism
— Appears in: Antipodes , December vol. 25 no. 2 2011; (p. 145-150)
James Dahlstrom looks for anti-American sentiment in Rolf Bolderwood's novel, Robbery under Arm. This is achieved by examining the novel 'in its historical context and by placing the author in this historical context and by treating the novel as colonial narrative.' (p. 145)
