AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'C.J. Dennis's biographers have consistently understated or ignored his political verse, but none as pointedly as Geoffrey Hutton, whose C.J. Dennis, The Sentimental Bloke was published on behalf of the Victorian Liberal Government in 1976. This paper surveys Dennis's most intense period of political output during his employment on the Call, a Labor Party ha'penny daily. It outlines the background to his decision to travel to Sydney to work on this newspaper during the Federal election campaign of 1914. It surveys his contributions to the Call during the campaign, and it sets out his personal disintegration during this period.' (Author's abstract)
