Why are European influences to be seen in major Australian writers?

The literature of the country has flowered and it is possible to trace its development through the convict legacy of the bush ballads and the early attempt to copy European modes and follow their traditions, to the rise of national consciousness, its extremist form as characterised by the Jindyworobaks and the subsequent, mature writing which maintains a balance between the two. There has also been a long-due recognition of women writers and their concerns as well as an expression of rights and the point of view of the Aborigines by those belonging to that dispossessed minority themselves.
