Works about this Work

“She Flings her Elfin Dreams of Mystery” : The Child-Poet Gwen Cope in the Land of “Australian Faery,” 1931–1939 Nicole Anae , 2013 single work criticism
— Appears in: Bookbird , January vol. 51 no. 1 2013; (p. 21-30)
'Gwen Cope enjoyed a significant reputation as a gifted Australian child-poet throughout the 1930s. Nevertheless, her two collections remain unacknowledged in the history of Australian literature despite their popularity. This article situates Cope's fairy-poetry against the ideological backdrop defined by adult fairy-poets of the 1930s to reveal fundamental discords between the child-poet writing her vision of fairy-folklore and the canonical writers who aimed to re-conceptualize " faery-lore" in the interests of Australian national literature.'
