The essay reprinted here first appeared in The Bookman, August 1928, then was published a year later as Number Twenty-Nine in the University of Washington Chapbooks, which included the Foreword by Nettie Palmer. This article may well be the first thorough study of Australian literature by an American critic. It is often mentioned but not generally available, so Antipodes publishes it once more, doing so with pride, and homage to the late C. Hartley Grattan, an early critic— and champion— of Australian literature. The essay is reprinted with the permission of Marjorie Grattan.
