Works about this Work

The Structure of Joseph Furphy's Such is Life John Barnes , 1956 single work criticism
— Appears in: Meanjin , Summer vol. 15 no. 4 1956; (p. 374-389) On Native Grounds : Australian Writing from Meanjin Quarterly 1967; (p. 47-61) The Australian Nationalists : Modern Critical Essays 1971; (p. 114-133)
Barnes argues that Furphy constructed Such is Life to give an impression of the "seeming shapelessness and uncertain consequence of everyday life". Drawing on evidence from a typescript of the novel and Furphy's correspondence, Barnes demonstrates how Furphy deliberately imposed the narrative structure and hidden plots.
