[Extract] 'The writer is a communist'. This phrase is now synonymous with the life story of Katharine Susannah Prichard, whose literary career began in 1916 with the publication of her first novel and whose political commitment was inspired by the 1917 Russian revolution. She died in 1969, much as she had lived - as a passionate supporter of Australian national literature and as a fellow traveller to the soviet cause against western capitalism. At the time, Australian literature was on the cusp of a radical transformation from nationalism to 'new diversity' while the world beyond was divided ideologically.
