    Can a comic novel be tiresome at times Yes Such is life.

    it was a while back I read it because it is labelled as an Australian classic, managed about two thirds of it but in the end was dreading getting up to read it, just not enough to grab me Did not finish And this is sayi...

    Not as well known as it deserves to be, this rambling masterpiece remains a foundation stone of Australian literature The title is said to be Ned Kelly s last words on the gallows, and its opening line is the exultation Unemployed at last How Australian is that

    Furphy s narrator is a self educated minor government official, who roams the outback in the company of a dog and two horses, crossing paths with drovers and swagmen and philosophizing all the while The digressions can be long, boring, and sometimes infuriating, and yet I think they make the book what it is, and it would be an inferior book without them It s a reaction to the flowery language of writers like Marcus Clarke You can imagine that it is exactly the way a self educated bush philosopher who spends his spare time reading Shakespeare and Victorian novelists would talk never one word when ten will do.The only really detrimental aspect of this book is Furphy s attempt at dialect The bush of Australia is peopled with all different nationalities, and all except the Australians of European descent are given ridiculous accents or manner of speech There are a few different English accents, plus Irish, Scottish, Chinese, French, German, and Dutch Besides betraying a troubling if unsurprising racism especially in the case of the Chinese dialect , all of them are nearly incomprehensible and painful to read It is a comic novel, and perhaps the turn of the century audience would have found it hilarious, but it is really quite difficult to read not purely because it s dialect, but because it s terrible dialect When reading...

    This is a great, great bk To people like myself who re acutely aware of how little respect working class intellectuals get in this society, this is a shining example of just how intelligent a working class person can be This is one of my favorite novels of all time ...

    This novel has been in my bucket list for decades and finally having gotten around to it, I was not disappointed though at times the reader needs to be VERY patient and have some empathy, if not resilience, to get through to the end The narrative device is that story is a set of diary extracts belonging to Tom Collins Within each extract is a story which often branches of into sub plots The novel gives an insight into bush life and rural work in the late 1800s.There are gems of writing which highlight the folkloric Australian form of laconic humour and stoicism in the face hardship Such as the pioneer is the man who never spared others the forgotten pioneer is the man who never spared himself, but, being a fool built houses for the wise men to live in and omitted to gather moss The former is the early bird, the latter is the early worm And but a short cut, impassable during the winter, and impracticable at any time to wheeled vehicles a road for optimistic fools.Part of the novel was difficult for me the writer...

    Unemployed at last Furphy s novel had such prominence at the start of the 20th century that his name has become Australian slang for a lie or, at least, an exaggeration This book is an important work of Aussie comedy, but ...

    This book is below average as a novel, but it does have some historical interest that increases its readability It does have one of the best opening lines of any novel I have encountered, which is Unemployed at last Apart from that, there is little of note in Furphy s prose style Its main interest for me was its portrayal of Australian bush life at the turn of the century the nineteenth to t...

    The fictional diary of Tom Collins, a public servant working in a small area around the Riverina district in the 1870s, mostly dealing with bullock drivers and station owners, with a little contemporary politics of the era.Most of the dialogue is in...

  10. says:

    Entertaining eccentric Australian bush classic, written in 1902 about 1880s bullockies, drovers, squatters and swaggies Full of Shakespeare quotes, Latin sayings and yarns of misadventures and romance.
