Works about this Work

Kenneth Slessor's 'Other Front' Julian Croft , 2015 single work essay
— Appears in: ‘Whaddaya Know?’ : Writings for Syd Harrex 2015; (p. 43-52)
'Kenneth Slessor's first published poem at the age of 16 was in the Bulletin (Goin'', 19 July 1917) and was a tribute to a dying Australian soldier after the Anzac landings. For the sixteen year-old, no doubt reflecting C.E.W. Bean's influence, the individual death and the wider military defeat are redeemed by the prospect of joining his mates in death and glory on another front, and as he leaves this world the soldier imagines the [sic] he hears the surf at Manly and the sights of Sydney Harbour. Slessor finished school as the Armistice was signed, but not before publishing two more poems on the war -'France' 1918' and 'Jerusalem Set Free' - both celebrating the Anzac tradition and seeing purpose and sense in those years of awful conflict.'
