Clark, Manning, 1915-1991
Lawson, Henry, 1867-1922; Authors, Australian - Biography.; 1800-1999
Lawson's poetry and prose inspired the feeling that life was worth living during the hardship of the 1890's depression. The great irony is that Lawson himself was a deeply divided man. He was a soul burdened with an insatiable craving for love, a combative spirit with impossible hopes that mankind might sort itself out. Manning Clark intimately reconstructs the agonising search for fulfilment of genius and happiness in one of our greatest literary figures.
