— Appears in: Southerly , vol. 28 no. 4 1968; (p. 250-271)
Sturm argues that Australia provided the most immediate context for Brennan's sense of the external world. In Poems Brennan sees through the "material", which is Australia, to provide "as complete a poetic statement of the pressures of a colonial situation as Henry Handel Richardson's The Fortunes of Richard Mahony".
