Contains an essay on Louis Stone, an Australian novelist and playwright, and his literary work. Although Louis Stone formed his literary ambitions early and pursued them through most of his life, his significance depends on one novel, Jonah, which he published in 1911. Although not the first Australian urban novel, it is the first to make power in the streets, homes, shops and markets of the city its major theme. Its literary quality comes not only from its almost cinematic descriptions of social reality, but for its symbolic use of urban imagery to represent the nature of good and evil in a secular world.
