Works about this Work

Selected Works of C. J. Dennis : Introduction Barry Watts , 1988 single work criticism biography
— Appears in: Selected Works of C. J. Dennis 1988; (p. 1-17)
Watts gives a substantial account of Dennis's life and work. Watts describes the success and failures of Dennis's verse, paying particular attention to the publishing strategies of George Robertson. The ever-changing tastes of the book-buying public played a significant part in the success and failures of Dennis's books and the poet's poor financial management ensured that he could afford to concentrate solely on his verse for only a short period of his life.
