Works about this Work

Francis Webb's America Toby Davidson , 2012 single work criticism
— Appears in: Antipodes , December vol. 26 no. 2 2012; (p. 189-194)
'This paper argues that Francis Webb's Physical and intellectual escape into Canada was also one into US poetics and that Webb's US engagement has been hitherto underestimated due to confusion around the origins of 'Dawn Wind on the Islands,' 'Melvill at Woods Hole,' and Serenade to the Favourite Movie-actress' in particular. New evidence around these poems suggests Webb's chief Canadian period from 1947-1949 gave rise to a unique poetic weighing of Australian, Canadian and US histories of land and mind in his second collection Leichhardt in Theatre (1952).
