The Peaceful Army

Front Cover
Penguin, Jan 1, 1988 - Australian poetry - 166 pages
Margaret Preston on Australian women artists; Miles Franklin on suffragist, Rose Scott; Eleanor Dark on Caroline Chisholm; Kylie Tennant on the future... In 1938 women looked to the past for women who had made a mark on Australian history, and they looked to the future. In 1988 we were reassessing the past once again. Kylie Tennant was the youngest contributor to this volume at that time; just before her death in 1988 she reflected on the intervening fifty years. Like mirrors reflecting mirrors, this book shows the precarious position on the intervening fifty years.
