AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Martin 'reads the novel as an exemplar of a particular subset of Australian historical fiction, novels that stage a search for white male heterosexual heroes. Kelly is a particularly interesting example, because his whiteness and maleness, along with his heterosexuality and his heroism, have been more or less vehemently contested (and continue to be so in the novel).' (Introduction to Fabulating Beuaty xxxiii).\
