              The Victorians and Edwardians created a cult of adolescence as significant as the Romantic cult of childhood, positing adolescence as a liminal period between childhood and adulthood, a time that adults could remember nostalgically but which for children leaving home represented ...a terrifying immersion into a hierarchical and authoritarian world.

              In this study, Charles Ferrall and Anna Jackson argue that the Victorians created a concept of adolescence that lasted into the twentieth century and yet is strikingly at odds with post-Second World War notions of adolescence as a period of storm and stress. In the enormously pop...ular juvenile literature of the period, primarily boys' and girls' own adventure and school stories, adolescence is acknowledged as a time of sexual awareness and yet also of a romantic idealism that is lost with marriage, a time when boys and girls acquire adult duties and responsibilities and yet have not had to assume the roles of breadwinner or household manager. The book reveals a concept of adolescence as significant as the Romantic cult of childhood that preceded it, which will be of interest to scholars of both children's literature and Victorian culture.

              Henry Lawson in New Zealand
               

              Henry Lawson in New Zealand (Paperback)

              Edited by Ferrall, Charles

              Australia's best-known writer Henry Lawson nearly became a New Zealander. Lawson made three trips to Maoriland , the first in 1894 in time to celebrate women voting for the first time in history, the last to teach at a Maori school in a remote and tiny settlement in the South Isl...and. Lawson left after finding the noble savage a fraud and New Zealanders a narrow paltryminded dogin-the manger lot , but later remembered that the most pleasant days of his life were spent on an old telegraph line in New Zealand and that he was inclined to prefer it to all the colonies . The stories, sketches and poems in this collection record his enthusiasm and despair, and capture a time before Australian federation when the colonies on both sides of Tasman were closer than they would ever be again.
