Summary
AU Author. Short Stories. One of the great observers of Australian life, Henry Lawson has become part of our national psyche, and his short stories and verse have come to affect how we view our own country. Yet at his best Lawson transcends even the very bush, the very outback, the very up-country, the very pub or selector's hut he conveys with such brevity and acuity: he makes specific places universal. Henry Lawson is too often regarded as a legend rather than a writer to be enjoyed. In this selection Lawson is revealed as a writer whose delightful, humorous, wry and moving short stories continue to delight generations of readers. This is the essential Lawson collection - the classic of Australian classics. This anthology includes an introduction by the well-known poet John Kinsella
