All these elements are visibly present in Bolt?s book, A Man for All Seasons. As I was reading this story I was thinking that it could probably apply to our day and age but that begged the question. Why did Robert Bolt decide to use a 16th century character rather than a present time period character and setting? I believe that Bolt chose this man and

postcolonial literature-For over half a century the poetry of Judith Wright provided Australians with words to explore the spiritual dimension of their land, its people and history. In this she was no sentimentalist. In her poem, At Cooloobah (1955), she speaks for all European peoples who have inhabited Australia: I'm a stranger come of a conquering people. This sense of Australian alienation from the land and victimization of its first peoples is dominant throughout her writing and actions.
