AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Sharkey argues that romance enabled Praed to present the colonial experience from a metropolitan point of view and intelligibly relate the circumstances of women in fronteir society to a European audience. This is achieved by employing a love-theory that declares, in Platonic terms, that for each person there is one who is their perfect match.
