Works about this Work

Marriage 'Among the Murkans' Janet Lee , 2011 single work criticism
— Appears in: Australian Feminist Studies , December vol. 26 no. 70 2011; (p. 469-483)
'Stella Miles Franklin (1879-1954) is best known for contributions to a uniquely Australian literary tradition. However, during her American years (1906-1915) when she worked in Chicago with the National Women's Trade Union League, Franklin wrote much unpublished fiction in the New Woman literary genre common to early-twentieth-century US women's traditions. This paper focuses on two such little-known unpublished stories: 'Uncle Robert's Wedding Present' (1908) and 'Teaching Him' (1909), discussing ways their entanglements with questions of marriage and economics are grounded in Franklin's work and personal life and in the intellectual influences that shaped her writing.'
