O knihe

Edited by Graham Tulloch with an Introduction by Amanda Nettelbeck
`We must have a country of our own, governed by ourselves, and not have the name of being ruled by fellows sent out of the heart of London.`
Stella Courtland`s transformation from an independent girl with a passion for the writings of Goethe, Heine, and Kant, to a married woman, hemmed in by social constraints, is the subject of Catherine Martin`s novel of 1890. An exploration of the fate of an Australian TNfew Woman`, the novel is also steeped in questions of Australian identity. Martin not only satirizes and scrutinizes colonial hierarchies, but she also anticipates Australia`s nationhood and the values of a new generation.
A journalist and essayist as well as a novelist, Catherine Martin was fascinated by the question of what `Australianness` might be at a time when Australia was breaking away from its status as a British colony, and, through the story of Stella`s painful growth to maturity, she paints a vivid picture of this turning-point in Australian history.
