Abstract

Contains an essay that partly deals with trials, cases and legislative processes some novelists, poets and publishing houses experienced, showing the lengths to which the establishment would use legal processes to prevent any challenge to accepted ideas. Considered is the trial of the Australian novelist Frank Hardy on a charge of obscene libel in his novel Power Without Glory, the same charge of which Robert Close in his novel Love me Sailor had been found guilty. This is accompanied with the literature review of Frank Hardy’s work and that of the Australian poet James McAuley.
