Bulletin, Vision

australian australia create intention

a short-lived Australian journal (19234), but of major importance in Australian letters. It was a challenge to Bulletin, which had dominated the Australian literary scene in its promotion of the nationalist strain of Australian writing. It was not the ‘Vision’ school's intention, however, to create an outpost in Australia for European modernism. Printing mainly the work of such poets as Kenneth Slessor, Jack Lindsay, R. D. Fitzgerald, and Hugh McRae, with illustrations by Norman Lindsay, their intention was to create a renaissance in Australia by returning to the influences of classical and Romantic literature. Vision subscribed to a Coleridgean theory of the imagination and was also inspired by Nietzschean ideas.
