Place and Masculinity in the Anzac Legend

Brian Dwyer


The paper argues that landscape has always been central to the construction of gender in our war fiction, as it is essential to any attemps to re-define or to contest the prevailing gender ideology, with reference to Oliver Hogue's Trooper Bluegum at the Dardanelles, Gladys Adeline Hain's The Coo-ee Contingent, William Baylebridge's An Anzac Muster, D. H. Lawrence's Kangaroo and David Malouf's war novels.
