'This critical biography fills a considerable gap in the history and criticism of Australian poetry.  Hugh Anderson, by means of a close reading of key poems and from discussions with the poet himself, has traced the development of O'Dowd's personal and political philosophy.  The details of his career, the background of his publications, the people who influenced, encouraged or condemned his work, his personal life and his fears for the political future of Australia are all discussed in relation to their influence on his poetry.'
