The Glugs of Gosh


Read by Chris Goringe

(5 stars; 1 reviews)

First published in 1917, The Glugs of Gosh satirizes Australian life at the start of the twentieth century - but the absurdities it catalogs seem just as prevalent at the start of the twenty-first. The foolishness of kings, the arrogance of the elite, the gullibility of crowds, the pride of the self-righteous, the unthinking following of tradition - all find themselves the targets of C. J. Dennis' biting wit. (Summary by Chris Goringe).

An epic satire.

Perhaps one star less for non-Australians, as some of the references are obscure,
