Works about this Work

Innocence at Risk : Charles Harpur's Adaptation of a Romantic Archetype to the Australian Landscape Michael Ackland , 1988 single work criticism
— Appears in: Aumla , November no. 70 1988; (p. 239-259)
Demonstrates how Harpur's poetry "reveals many instances of the familiar Romantic motif of innocence betrayed or at risk, adapted to meet the demands and conditions of the new colony." Ackland maintains that these "inherited ideas", this "vision of existence as a struggle between death-affiliated forces and God's benevolent influence is related to the poet's proccupation with how man would shape the largely untouched landscape of terra australis."
