Questions of myth, landscape and self constituting a sense of place have played a significant role in much literature written in and about Australia and continue to do so; from the folkloric works of Henry Lawson and “Banjo” Patterson in the 1890’s to the novels of Katharine Prichard, Patrick White and Tim Winton, for example. Perhaps surprisingly, the novels of English Biologist, amateur anthropologist and psychologist, metaphysician and colonialist E.L. Grant Watson (1885-1970) belong to this tradition.
