AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Schaffer considers the place of women in Lawson's fiction in relation to the many constructions of an authorial identity that supports various critical perspectives. Schaffer demonstrates that women are a signifier of lack within the discourse on the Australian tradition that uses Lawson as an example. This discourse, Schaffer argues, establishes a bond between the writer and his audience that stabilizes and solidifies the construction of a masculine national identity.
