Johnson, Rachel (2006) The Past and Future Hero: the Henty Boy in the Twenty-First Century? The Henty Society Bulletin.
The purpose of this paper is to address the question ‘Can the Henty hero be transferred into the twenty-first century?’ In order to investigate the question I will begin with a brief introduction to G. A. Henty and his work before examining the construct of the Henty hero. The results of this examination provide an answer to the immediate question, whilst foregrounding other significant areas for enquiry.
