AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Author's abstract : Both Stan's grandson and the lost boy in The Tree of Man are projections of the young Patrick White, future artist. The Poem germinating in the mind of Stan's grandson at the end of the novel is an early and fuller account of White's literary ambitions than even 'The Prodigal Son' three years later.
