Written by a teenager living in the Australian bush in the 1890s and originally published in 1901, Miles Franklin's My Brilliant Career is a candid representation of the aspirations and frustrations of a young woman constrained by middle-class social arrangements, especially the pressure to marry.
My Brilliant Career has continued to delight readers and cause them to locate their personal realities in the struggle of Franklin's heroine, Sybylla Melvyn, to recognize and pursue what she most wants and needs in her life.
