In 1926 the poet Jack Lindsay arrived in London to launch an Australian invasion of British culture, instead he went native, writing about the English countryside in fiction, biography, children’s stories – and poetry. As he immersed himself in English history, Lindsay began to discover its radical traditions as well as its revolutionary potential. His Mass Declamation Who are the English? was one of Unity Theatre’s first hits. During the Spanish Civil War, his On Guard for Spain was performed all over Britain. In the Second World War he wrote play-scripts for the Army Bureau of Current Affairs.
