AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Hergenhan discusses Warung's 1890s treatment of Australia's convict past. Warung was the first writer to link the convict system with Australia's development beyond a colonial status. Hergenhan argues that Warung's fiction successfully connects this sense of the past with the political milieu of the 1890s, producing entertaining stories that make the past reverberate for later readers.
