Discusses Adams's 'ability to negotiate multiple writing positions and voices in order to reach widely different readerships in both the colonies and the motherland. Examines the way in which he adopts 'the form of popular verse, using vernacular forms and diction ... [and] constructs a persona that is consistent with much of his more "literary" writing' and which 'allows the "implied poet" of the wholoe volume to be constructed as both a member of the oppressed masses and a middle-class sympathiser.' (p.71)
(p. 71-85)
