Francis William Lauderdale Adams (1862-1893)--poet, novelist, social analyst and journalist--made a significant place for himself in Australian literary and cultural history. Born in England, he was a self-consciously modern writer of the fin de si├Ęcle; the theme of suicide figured frequently in his writings, and in death he embodied the romantic myth of the consumptive artist. His impact on Australian cultural history was larger than the merely personal. He influenced a whole generation of idealistic young socialists in Australia, and had a leading role in the development of the Australian labour movement. Much of his best work was concerned with Australian social and political developments in the years leading up to Federation, and his book The Australians (1893) is a much-quoted classic of Australian social commentary. He was an early and influential spokesman for the Australian nationalism of the 1890s, articulating ideas of democracy and independence from England. Quantity Available: 1.
