AbstractHistoryArchive Description

A 'study, with a touch of satire, of changing courses in the life of a young Englishman, given to fashionable vices, who migrates to New South Wales in order to redeem himself'. A 'modern treatment of the emigrant novel', Max Flambard 'reflects the stabilizing tendences of Australian life in these latter days; the criss-crossing of English and Australian social convention' provide a point of contrast within the narrative . (Source Miller, Australian Literature from its Beginnings to 1935, 1940)
