Rate this:
"The man from Snowy River" was first published in the "Bulletin" on 26 April, 1890. It received wide acclaim, and ensured for its young author a permanent place in Australian literature. It became one of the best loved and best known of Australian poems, and Banjo Paterson became the most popular of the Australian balladists. In this volume, the poem is presented in an unusual way - as the inspiration for a series of paintings by Robert Lovett. These paintings strike a remarkable harmony with the poem, as they faithfully translate, in visual terms, the images evoked by the world. The result is a dramatic and compelling presentation of this beautiful Australian ballad.
