Literature. "DOROTHY: A COUNTRY STORY IN ELEGIAC VERSE." [Newspaper Article] — The Shoalhaven Telegraph — 13 July 1882

Xiteratutre. 'DOROTHY: A COUNTRY STORY IN ELEGIAC VERSE.' Sometimes an author's work is doomed to obscurity for reasons quite aside from its actual merit. At some other time he may wako up and find himself famous, not so much because he has dono a bettor thing as because he has happened to hit the popular caprice at the right moment. The author of ' Dorothy' published many vcars aco a volume of uooms which attracted little or no attention beyond a kind word hero and there from some critic. Laterstillhe published a poem entitled ' Doris, a Pastoral.' But for some reason the public did not become much interested in the perfor mance. The same author (Arthur J. Munby) recently published ' Dorothy' anonymously. Tho poem at once challenged public curiosity. Robert Browning wanted to know the author; the critics wanted to know ; tho greater public wanted to know. Hero was a poem quite un like anything in style and matter, which had been given to tho public in many a day. Who was this unkno...
