Written in 1922, the novel Kangaroo depicts Australia in a vivid and sympathetic manner, while fusing lightly disguised autobiography with an exploration of political ideas at an intensely personal level. The text is based on a collation of the manuscript, typescripts and first editions, as recorded in the apparatus. The Introduction gives background of composition and publication and a summary of contemporary reviews. Explanatory notes, with a geographical appendix, elucidate the local, political and literary allusions.
