Henry Lawson

Henry Lawson (17 June, 1867, Grenfell goldfields, New South Wales - 2 September, 1922, Sydney) was an Australian writer and poet.

He suffered an ear infection at the age of seven that left him with partial deafness and by the age of fourteen he had lost all his hearing. Most of his works focus on the Australian bush and are considered by some to be one of the first accurate descriptions of Australian life as it was at the time.
