AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Discusses three Australian novels which 'are strikingly similar in that they have at their heart a male figure who acts in a distructive way towards the women around him; all three of the male protagonists disguise their egotistic aggression under forms of pretended love ... and in all three the victim of the deception eventually sees through it and abandons the older man' (459).
