£12.99

Product description

A. G. Stephens is Australia's most outstanding literary critic. During the 1890's and the first three decades of the century, his critical and editorial work, especially through the famous Red Page of the Bulletin, gave him an unrivalled stature in Australian letters. Here collected and reprinted for the first time is the best of his literary and social criticism. Leon Cantrell traces his life through the thirty years he was Australia's foremost literary critic and shows the part he played in recognising and promoting some of Australia's earliest literary figures. Including are Stephens' reviews and considered opinions and anecdotes about great early Australian writers like Henry Lawson, Banjo Peterson, Steele Rudd, Joseph Furphy, Marcus Clarke, John Shaw Neilson and many others. Also represented is a selection of his articles on English, American and European literature, art and local people and politics.
