AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When C. J. Dennis's The Moods of Ginger Mick was launched in October 1916, one reader expressed anger about the ending. Writing facetiously on behalf of Melbourne's larrikins, this contributor to the Bulletin called it a 'rotten pome' and said - in a blunt piece of literary criticism - that he would like to punch the poet in the jaw. Actually, Dennis had thought very hard about how to finish his book, and there is no question that he found the most fitting ending, both for his own time and for later generations.' (Introduction, 49)
