FALS: Monograph No 1: Fanny Bertram 'The Structure of Mansfield Park' by Ross R Smith

Fanny Bertram 'The Structure of Mansfield Park' by Ross Smith, 1978

Jane Nardin, in her book Those Elegant Decorums, published in 1973, begins her sixth chapter with this sentence: "Mansfield Park is at present Jane Austen's most unpopular novel." It is certainly Jane Austen's most overtly didactic novel, and our present age is not one in which preaching is much in fashion. The chief difficulty, however, lies in the character of the heroine, for she turns out to be incorrigibly gentle and retiring. Her characterization is all the more remarkable in that she is the direct successor to Jane Austen's previous heroine, the vivacious Elizabeth Bennett of Pride and Prejudice. Jane Austen herself, however, came to regard this previous book as being "too light, and bright, and sparkling", and it was followed by the more staid novel Mansfield Park. One of the contemporary opinions of the book, which Jane Austen collected and transcribed, was that of Mrs Carrick, who declared that "All who think deeply and feel much will give the preference to Mansfield Park." It has certainly long been my own favourite among Jane Austen's novels.

FALS: Percy Fritz Rowland, A Brief Biography by Anne McKay

Percy Fritz Rowland, A Brief Biography by Anne McKay, 1974

The name of Percy Fritz Rowland is well known to many North Queenslanders. Former pupils of the Townsville Grammar School will remember him as the jovial English headmaster who, with his new wife, sailed into the Townsville harbour in the Arawatta in January 1905, to take charge of that school. He remained there until December 1938. In those 34 years of devoted service to the school he made a name for himself as a headmaster and teacher of the highest order and as a man of great humour, understanding, and outstanding ability.

Other Northerners will remember Rowland as the author of the entertaining "Essays in Brief' written by "P.F.R.", which were published in the Townsville Daily Bulletin and in The North Queensland Register during the 1930's. Still others may remember him as the man who did so much to improve the standard of education in North Queensland, and who endeavoured to dispel the rumours in those early days that the North was no fit place for the white man.
