Summary
Reviews development of Australian legends from the time of white settlement; Aboriginal oral legend and lore largely ignored except for anthologies by K. Langloh and Mary Grant Bruce's collection of legends; now wide exposure through television and literature; two of Les Murray's works mentioned as example of contemporary use of motifs from Australia's different racial cultures; concludes that sensitive and imaginative use of Aboriginal, colonial and multi-cultural traditions in contemporary works will lead to the strengthening of Australian legends and heritage
