Author Biography

Henry Lawson was born in Grenfell, NSW, in 1867. At the age of 14 he became totally deaf, an affliction which many have suggested rendered his world all the more vivid and subsequently enlivened his writing. After a stint of coach painting, he edited a periodical, THE REPUBLICAN, and began writing verse and short stories. His first work of short fiction appeared in the BULLETIN in 1888. He traveled to New Zealand and around Australia and in 1896 married Bertha Brett. He continued to travel and to write short fiction and poetry throughout his life and published numerous collections of both even as his marriage collapsed and he descended into poverty and mental illness. He spent several productive sojourns in the country but died in 1922, leaving his wife and two children.
