Works about this Work

Rediscovered Lawson Sketch of 1863 'Selection Farms' Paul Eggert , 2012 single work essay
— Appears in: Australian Literary Studies , October-November vol. 27 no. 3/4 2012; (p. 124-135)

Flights of Fancy or a Fancy for Flights : A Reading of Henry Lawson's Poems Binod Mishra , 2010 single work criticism
— Appears in: Lemuria , vol. 3 no. 2010; (p. 134-145)
This paper ‘endeavours to argue and establish the fact that Henry Lawson’s poetry which appears less poetic and devoid of certain poetic qualities have poured straight forth the poet’s heart. His poetry may depict the history of his time yet is full of poetic sensibility.’ (p. 134)
Man, Work and Country: The Production of Henry Lawson Christopher Lee , 1992 single work criticism
— Appears in: Australian Literary Studies , May vol. 15 no. 3 1992; (p. 110-122)
Lee conducts a semiotic analysis of the reception of Henry Lawson and his works, revealing the connections critics made between the work, the hand of the author and truth. Lee finds that the work of a colonial realist like Lawson was subordinated to a European aesthetic in the "shifting discursive territories which characterise culture", subsequently excluding it from the validating process of the dominant culture.
