Jane, My Love, Catherine Shepherd , 1951 single work drama

The main theme of the play is the clash between Jane Franklin, a woman of outstanding character and advanced ideas, and the Colonial Secretary, John Montague, leader of the autocratic officials.

Deals with the clashes between Sir John Franklin and the remnants of the 'Arthur Faction', principally the Colonial Secretary and the Chief Police Magistrate. Franklin's position is made the worse by a well-meaning but thoughtless Private Secretary....The Colonial Secretary is upheld and Franklin is disgraced and recalled, but his influence, in the form of the work he has done and the work of his wife, 'Jane, My Love', for the Colony, compensate for his official humiliation. Lady Jane Franklin is the dominating character who by her charm, poise, intellect and vision of the future commands respect, attention and affection. (The Campbell Howard Annotated Index of Australian Plays 1920-1955 (1993) edited by Jack Bedson and Julian Croft (1993):341)

Works about this Work

Marriage 'Among the Murkans' Janet Lee , 2011 single work criticism
— Appears in: Australian Feminist Studies , December vol. 26 no. 70 2011; (p. 469-483)
'Stella Miles Franklin (1879-1954) is best known for contributions to a uniquely Australian literary tradition. However, during her American years (1906-1915) when she worked in Chicago with the National Women's Trade Union League, Franklin wrote much unpublished fiction in the New Woman literary genre common to early-twentieth-century US women's traditions. This paper focuses on two such little-known unpublished stories: 'Uncle Robert's Wedding Present' (1908) and 'Teaching Him' (1909), discussing ways their entanglements with questions of marriage and economics are grounded in Franklin's work and personal life and in the intellectual influences that shaped her writing.'
