AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Rolf Boldrewood was one of the best-known novelists of 19th-century Australia, and the first to present specifically Australian characters. Robbery Under Arms became a household name and is still in print. Boldrewood's alter ego, Thomas Alexander Brown, was a pioneer squatter, civil servant and writer, with a career in many ways far grimmer than most of his fiction.' (Publication summary)

— Review of Rolf Boldrewood : A Life Paul H. De Serville 2000 single work criticism biography

'If Paul de Serville's latest book were entitled Thomas Browne: A Life, who would read it? As it is, Browne's pen name 'Rolf Boldrewood' will attract few enough readers, I suspect, despite Peter Carey's recent success with the True History of the Kelly Gang. 'Boldrewood', not Browne, is the name with currency, though the public is as likely to know his classic account of bushranging, Robbery under Arms, from one of its many film versions as from reading the original. De Serville reveals further reasons for sticking to the nom de plume: Browne wrote as 'Templar' and 'An Australian', and with the possibility of illegitimacy hanging over him, added an 'e' to his name to raise himself above the ruck and to associate himself with more illustrious forebears. In literature, and to a lesser extent in life, Browne was given to improving romantically on his family line and experiences.' (Introduction)
