Example text

Both parents looked younger and fresher than the children. ), carried it in to them, had a meal of bread and fat, and, when necessary, went into the bush to cut and get together a load of firewood. And the girls were eight and nine. The boy's physical development was naturally abnormal, but his head didn't seem to belong to his body.

Robin Boyd's very influential sociological study of the city and suburbia, The Australian Ugliness, turns 'pioneer', 'progress', and 'development' into pejorative terms. He too makes a psychological projection onto the Australian landscape: it was 'made in one of nature's more relaxed, even casual, moods'. For him that is a virtue, compared with the obsessive neatness of the European landscape. The Australian Ugliness, first published in 1960, may well have had an influence on some of the landscaping ideas espoused in George Johnston's novel, My Brother jack (1964).
