AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Examining the literary career of Marcus Clarke, Tony Moore concludes that 'Clarke was Australia's first celebrity writer, adopting the pose of the inner-city slacker, an alternative to the prissy middle class and the grin-and-bear-it bushie. More the sceptical satirist than the true believer, he offered the promise of a different way of being a cultured rebel.'
