Catherine Helen Spence
Jane and Alice Melville are looking for a living wage. Although well qualified with a ‘boy’s education’, neither can find a suitable position. They are disinherited by an uncle who believes that money will turn their heads and make them too independent. Driven to desperation in their struggle to support themselves, eventually they look abroad for new opportunities. But life in the new world has its own problems. First published in 1867, Mr Hogarth’s Will adds a personal dimension to an exciting period in Australian history and reinforces Catherine Helen Spence’s pre-eminent place in Australian literature.
