Women, Romance and the Nation
This essay looks at the production and reception of Catherine Martin’s An Australian Girl in the 1890s as an exemplary case of the attempt to contain the reformist interests of late nineteenth century women’s writing within prescriptive social ideologies and the established conventions of the romance form. It predates Rosemary Campbell’s work on Catherine Martin and is the only essay omitted from her academy edition of Martin’s work.
