AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Focuses on the basic traits of Lawson's personality and the ways in which they influenced his writing. Examines biographical aspects such as the parent-child relationship, guilt and expiation and other psychological problems he faced which may account for the unevenness of Lawson's literary production and the weakness of his verse and later prose.
