AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Cantrell explores the myths that have been constructed around the Bulletin and A. G. Stephens' role in the development of Australian literature. Cantrell argues that the Bulletin's status as a nationalist publication is destabilized by an unacknowledged "bourgeois vision" and a tendency towards xenophobia that produced a "selfcontained world". But, in the "Red Page", A. G. Stephens' subdued assessment of Australian literature in relation to European literature produced a voice far removed from the "xenophobic nationalism" promulgated by the Bulletin.
