Some five years ago for the first time we read one of Henry Lawson’s poems, ‘Trooper Campbell’, and so deep was the impression it made we have ever since regarded with special interest anything published with his name, prose and verse. Although neither subject nor treatment has in every instance proved altogether, perhaps, to our taste, or, in our judgment, worthy of the writer, whatever may have been the mistakes or shortcomings in Mr. Lawson’s work, the achievements have been more numerous and of greater significance. It is with no small degree of pleasure that we welcome the selection of his poems just published in a well-got-up volume by Messrs. Angus and Robertson, Sydney, under the title of In the Days when the World was Wide, which is that of the first piece in the book.
