Abstract

Contains a review on an Australian literary critic and poet Dorothy Green, and her work. Dorothy Green, better known in her earlier years by her maiden name as the poet Dorothy Auchterlonie, began her writing career while a student at Sydney University, where, as editor of the journal Hermes, she published an editorial essay, "People, Politics, and Poetry” early as 1938. The separate words in the title identify the issues that were to remain central to her concerns throughout her life, and their juxtaposition explains her moral passion. Poetry, and literature in general, were means of identifying and clarifying human relationships and her criticism is merciless in its condemnation of pretension in content and falsity in form.
