The "Bulletin Debate" was a famous dispute in The Bulletin magazine from 1892-93 between two of Australia's most iconic writers and poets: Henry Lawson and Andrew Barton "Banjo" Paterson. At the time, The Bulletin was a popular and influential publication, and often supported the typical national self-image held by many Australians, sometimes termed the "bush legend. Many Australian writers and poets, such as "Banjo" Paterson, were based primarily in the city, and had a tendency to romanticise bush life.

He was poet laurite of the United States of America from 2001 to 2003. The book was described by Collins as his first real book of poetry. This is only one of the numerous honors, accolades, and titles he holds. His readings regularly sell out, and his goal as poet laureate was to encourage school children to connect with poetry. Introduction to Poetry was first published in 1988 in The Apple That Astonished Paris.

In his book, Banjo Paterson: Poet by Accident, the late Colin Roderick, a noted authority on Australian literature, devoted less than a few pages to The Man from Snowy River. Waltzing Matilda was transformed into the much-loved national song, but some of the ballad's meaning and poetic origins were lost in the process. Immediately after his death, in 1941, Paterson was recalled with faint praise that stands in complete contrast to his popular acclaim today. The world wanted a romantic picture of the bush and the stalwart bushman - things that were passing into history, things that people feared to lose," Roderick wrote.

There are few Australians who cannot recall the opening lines of "The Man from Snowy River", and fewer still who are not familiar with the words of "Waltzing Matilda". But how much is really known of their author, Australia's most famous poet, Banjo Paterson? Colin Roderick combines the insight of long experience with painstaking research through family documents, unpublished records, archival papers and Paterson's own words to reveal the many factors and influences that made up Paterson's complex character. For generations Andrew Barton Paterson's ancestors had been soldiers and versifiers. Born into a tradition of piety and service, he was eminently fitted by temperament and character for the life of a soldier. Denied his chosen career by a childhood accident, Paterson trained as a solicitor but he was never happy in the law. Instead he became a frustrated man whose literary endeavours - his poetry and his reports as a war correspondent - were merely a substitute for the life and excitement he craved. After lying about his age to earn a commission to Egypt, Paterson returned to Australia in 1919, and joined forces with Ezra Norton as a director of Truth and Sportsman Limited. He was editor of the Sydney "Sportsman" until obliged to retire just as the Great Depression began to bite. Thereafter his life followed a descending curve. Unlike his rival Henry Lawson, he died in relative obscurity, reticent to the end. Accident, Paterson said, made him a poet. "Banjo Paterson: Poet by Accident" reveals that he was a frustrated man, restless, chained by misfortune to a life of literary substitution, retreating within himself more and more as consciousness of his unfulfilled destiny took possession of his mind.
