Author Biography - Louis Esson
Louis Esson (1879-1943), influenced by W.B. Yeats, pursued the idea of Australian folk drama on the model of the Abbey Theatre in Dublin. Esson worked to establish a nationalist drama in which themes of working-class urban and bush life would become the basis for great international artistic achievements. The political comedy The Time Is Not Yet Ripe (1912) is his best known work. His other plays include: Dead Timber (1911), The Drovers (1923), Mother and Son (1923), The Woman Tamer (1910), The Sacred Place (1912) and The Bride of Gospel Place (1926).
