Works about this Work

Excavating the Borders of Literary Anglo-Saxonism in Nineteenth-Century Britain and Australia Chris Jones , Louise D'Arcens , 2013 single work criticism
— Appears in: Representations , Winter vol. 121 no. 1 2013; (p. 85-106)

'Comparing nineteenth-century British and Australian Anglo-Saxonist literature enables a “decentered” exploration of Anglo-Saxonism’s intersections with national, imperial, and colonial discourses, challenging assumptions that this discourse was an uncritical vehicle of English nationalism and British manifest destiny. Far from reflecting a stable imperial center, evocations of “ancient Englishness” in British literature were polyvalent and self-contesting, while in Australian literature they offered a response to colonization and emerging knowledge about the vast age of Indigenous Australian cultures.' (Authors abstract)

From a Mining Warden's Verandah : Thomas Browne as 'Nation' Watcher - Ethnographer J. S. Ryan , 2002 single work criticism
— Appears in: 'Unemployed at Last!' : Essays on Australian Literature to 2002 for Julian Croft 2002; (p. 44-58) Australian Folklore , November no. 23 2008; (p. 94-108)
The aims of this essay are "to give some idea of Boldrewood's deeply perceptive insights into the evolving social history associated with Australian gold mining and into the contribution of the international contingents amongs miners to nineteenth century Australian development, recording his views in novels which had a very wide readership in the English-speaking world" and to explore "various related aspects of the evolving Australian character and stock, particularly on the goldfields of the nation". Argues that Browne/Boldrewood was right "to regard gold mining and miners as very substantial building materials for the new and even then multicultural nation" (57).
Whiteness Under Arms: Rolf Boldrewood and Rosa Praed's Outlaw Narratives David Callahan , 1999 single work criticism

y separately published work icon Writing the Colonial Adventure : Race, Gender and Nation in Anglo-Australian Popular Fiction, 1875-1914 Robert Dixon , Oakleigh : Cambridge University Press , 1995 Z480378 1995 single work criticism

'This book is an exploration of popular late nineteenth-century texts that show Australia - along with Africa, India and the Pacific Islands - to be a preferred site of imperial adventure. Focusing on the period from the advent of the new imperialism in the 1870s to the outbreak of World War I, Robert Dixon looks at a selection of British and Australian writers. Their books, he argues, offer insights into the construction of empire, masculinity, race, and Australian nationhood and identity. Writing the Colonial Adventure shows that the genre of adventure/romance was highly popular throughout this period. The book examines the variety of themes within their narrative form that captured many aspects of imperial ideology. In considering the broader ramifications of these works, Professor Dixon develops an original approach to popular fiction, both for its own sake and as a mode of cultural history.' (Introduction)
