AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Peter Nicholson's essay 'assays the curious case of Ern Malley, an entirely fictional poet, invented in 1943 to expose what the perpetrators thought of as Modernism's foolishness. Nicholson observes that the Ern Malley affair, as it has come to be known does show a certain propensity for literary politicking and obstructionism that has not been without subsequent issue.' (x)
