Stage and screen

"Tien Hogue, a good-looking Sydney girl, with a honey-sweet speaking voice, [who is soon to tour country towns as "Aggie Lynch" in Veiller’s play, Within the Law] gave such an intelligent reading of the part of Victoria Chope in [the new Haddon Chambers play] "Sir Anthony", at the Repertory Theatre, that she is likely to prove a bright addition to the native-born stage contingent." – The Bulletin, 30 July 1914. [15]

There were five main arenas where Australian Great War Poetry was written in the period of 1914 to 1939: the Home Front, Gallipoli, The Middle East, The Western Front and England. These arenas were to form important segregations of poetic attitude and interest specific to the war mood at the time. Australian poets, just like their British counterparts, could be humorous, melancholy, angry or just longing for home. Many Australians, for example, wrote about the Australian flora, and how they missed it.
