      He set off on 20 April for England. Behind the plough as he wends his way The fresh wind blowing through shirt and hair, The ploughman welcomes the rising day, With leaping pulse to the clear, cold air. Lawson went back to old friends and old ways in Sydney. The Larsen tent shuddered at the impact. The selection even at its best was only marginally productive. Lawson's initial enthusiasm for the Maoris whom he taught at the lonely, primitive settlement soon waned.

      Though cared for by the loyal Mrs Byers, he became a frail, haunted and pathetic figure well known on the streets of Sydney; in his writing, images of ghostliness proliferated and increasingly a sense of insubstantiality blurred action and characters. In hindsight, I probably deserved it. Magistrates found it almost impossible to crack the code of silence among a group of mates. In any case, Lawson's withholding, austere prose was ill suited to analytic probing, which is why Joe Wilson, fine piece of work though it is, seems constantly on the point of disintegration.

      A sound appreciation of Lawson's work and his place in Australia's literary development is in H. Lawson's reputation must rest on his stories and on a Henry Lawson and his critics book small group of them: While the Billy Boils, the Joe Wilson quartet of linked, longer stories and certain others lying outside these among them, 'The Loaded Dog', 'Telling Mrs Baker' and 'The Geological Spieler'. The homesteaders' endless struggle to earn a living from the impoverished land colored the youth's outlook, and his unhappiness was intensified by strained relationships at home. Louisa wrote poetry and encouraged Henry to do the same. Like Joseph Furphy, Lawson was touched by the theories of American social philosophers Edward Bellamy and Henry George, whose books were being carried through the backcountry in the saddlebags of union organizers. Lawson's desire to achieve a literary reputation during the s coexisted with an aspiration to mold the social and political will of his audience, and both of these impulses were significantly influenced by his material situation as a working-class colonial writer.
