Vance Palmer's first novel, <i>The Passage</i>, makes part of the series of novels that have set the trend to the 20th century Australian fiction and is as such an emblematic book.<i></i>It is essentially a family saga canvassing the fortunes of a single generation, but the narrative technique used to develop the plot transcends the requirements of the genre by introducing literary practices and psychological insights espoused by the followers of modernism in Europe and America between the two World Wars.
