AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The author explores 'possibilities of positive and benign influence whereby British literature has stimulated post-colonial literatures to independence: to adapt and transform influence', seeing it as 'an ongoing and unpredictable process shaped by changing historical circumstances.' In relation to Marcus Clarke, A. D. Hope and Christopher Koch, the author suggests 'continuities and changes' and a diversity that 'resists generalisation, except of a facile kind.'


  • Includes reference to the influence of London on Australian writers.
