AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Pybus examines the years of friendship between McAuley and Stewart from their shared secondary school education, joint time at Sydney University, attachment to the same research unit in World War II and their collaboration on the 'Ern Malley' poems. Pybus suggests that their relationship was complicated by Stewart's sexual attraction to McAuley and draws on examples of Stewart's poetry and the Malley poems to justify her claim.
