AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In 1968, Maurice Guest was the only Australian novel to significantly deal with love. Kiernan examines the conventions of romantic love at play in the novel, arguing that while the characters may seem conventional on the surface in this context, Richardson explores the psychology of each character more deeply. Kiernan concludes that despite the flaws of Maurice Guest, it is a remarkable novel because of its exploration of romantic conventions in 1908.
