Works about this Work

'A Nation for a Continent' : Australian Literature and the Cartographic Imaginary of the Federation Era Robert Dixon , 2014 single work criticism
— Appears in: Antipodes , June vol. 28 no. 1 2014; (p. 141-154, 254)
'During the Federation era, the isomorphic association of literature, land, and nation found expression through the cartographic imaginary, a term that is meant to focus especially on the role of maps in shaping imagined geographies, but which also includes related media such as topographical engravings and photographic views. Contrary to Paul Giles's implication of an achieved "national period" in American literary history, however, Dixon argues that in Australia during the Federation era, the cartographic imaginary expressed an alignment of literature, land, and nation that was more wished for than achieved. He claims that the literature of the Federation period-in particular, the sketches and stories of Henry Lawson's While the Billy Boils (1896) and Joseph Furphy's novel Such is Life (1903)–reveals the uncertainties and the sense of incompletion that attend the cartographic imaginary.'

— Appears in: Westerly , July vol. 54 no. 1 2009; (p. 12-17)

Provincial to International : Southwest Pacific Literature in English Since the 1920's Joseph Jones , 1979 single work criticism
— Appears in: Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific Islands Since the First World War 1979; (p. 125-147)
‘To writer and reader alike, the prospects for indigenous literature in the Southwest Pacific just after the First World War could not have appeared very roseate. Following a cultural resurgence in both Australia and New Zealand during the 1890s, hopes had dwindled during wartime, and new strength ready to take over was in short supply. ‘Colonial’ writing was in fact for the most part still just that, despite a large measure of political self-determination already achieved, ans was to remain colonial for some time to come. No single poet, novelist, or playwright of undoubted stature could be counted on either side of the Tasman Sea. There were no local literary reviews or other such journals; newspapers took note of whatever might occasionally venture into print, continuing to serve this function so faithfully that some of them are still sources of respectable criticism. As a result of assignments falling to the lot of the Anzacs during the First World War, a catastrophically high percentage of the best young men were sacrificed in the costly attempt upon Gallipoli and in the scarcely less savage campaigns on the Western Front. What incipient authorship there was among them, never to develop, cannot be known, but it is not unreasonable to surmise that the scarcity and mediocrity of literary production in the 1920s must have been related to so much slaughter of talent among the generation that otherwise would have survived to be given its chance.’(Author’s introduction)
