“”Here all the birds in the bush of the ‘Australianist’ legend come home to roost – the underdog and his fight against society; the ambiguous rebel seen as lawless hero; the collision between the capitalist enterprise of the cities, and its conformist compulsions, with the private enterprise of the bush; the epic themes of endurance and of wandering in vast, hostile landscapes.  And, for the first time, and Australian playwright rose to them with anti-naturalistic language capable of evoking the all-important scene and making it ‘live’ as a dynamic element in the drama, and capable in its terse, laconic, cunningly patterned speech rhythms of making characters live authentically – because they are articulate.”
