AbstractHistoryArchive Description

John Beston discusses Patrick White's 'borrowings' from the novels of American writer Willa Cather, highlighting links between several White novels and Cather's O Pioneers!, Death Comes for the Archbishop and A Lost Lady. Beston contends that White's novels show 'almost no influence of other Australian authors', but do indicate the influence of American writers.
