AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Wallace-Crabbe argues that Such is Life suffers from an excess of artifice and concludes that Furphy's realism leaves out too much of life: goodness and positive human values. Wallace-Crabbe concludes, "Far more than any question of structural over-ingenuity or an occasional act of garrulousness, [the] tendency to simply acquiesce in an amoral and fatalistic universe seems the important weakness of Such is Life".
