Works about this Work

A "Close-Cropped Scribess" : Agnes Murphy as Gossip Columnist, New Woman (Lesbian?) Novelist, Opera Entrepreneur and Militant Suffragette Lucy Sussex , 2011 single work criticism
— Appears in: Southerly , vol. 71 no. 1 2011; (p. 127-142)

'At the turn of the last century, Australian literary and artistic hopefuls looked to London to further their careers, make good in the centre of the British Empire. Did they not have the example of Melba, the girl from the colonies who had become a diva, the most famous Australian in the world? A whole host of talents took the steamships north, actors, journalists, singers and famously Henry Lawson, for whom the trip proved a personal and artistic disaster.' (Author's introduction, p. 127)

The Americanisation of Romantic Love in Australia Hsu-Ming Teo , 2005 single work criticism
— Appears in: Connected Worlds: History in Transnational Perspective 2005; (p. 172-192)

This chapter explores the transnational influence of consumer capitalism on the culture of romantic love in Australia during the twentieth century, particularly as it has been manifested through advertising. I want to utilise Benedict Anderson’s well-known argument about how print capitalism created the ‘imagined community’ of the nation to argue that if the circulation of texts throughout society can foster feelings of nationalism,[470] they can also create or affect emotional experiences of romantic love.'  (Introduction)

'We have received a number of Table Talk, a Melbourne paper, replete with brightly written reading matter, also the first number of Truth, a Sydney Sunday paper on somewhat the same lines as Table Talk. The latter has already a very large circulation, and we can safely prophecy the same for Truth.'
