This thesis is an attempt to assess the impact and effects of the First World War on Tasmania. The original inspiration for the topic came from D.H. Lawrence's Kangaroo and the debate in Meanjin Quarterly, Nos. 1 and 2, 1965, about whether Kangaroo was \fact or fiction\"; whether in fact Australia was racked by violent division and in particular physical clashes between returned soldiers and socialists or whether as Richard Aldington suggests in his Introduction to the Penguin edition Lawrence merely transferred to the Australian scene the bitter contests between fascists and communists he had witnessed in Italy."
