Ada Cambridge's life story is rich and fascinating. She was a strong personality, resourceful, independent-minded, a writer at the cutting edge of nineteenth-century thought. Ada Cambridge's work was widely read in Australia, England and the United States. Acclaimed in her lifetime as a leading Australian writer, after her death in 1926 she was dismissed as merely a popular novelist. Today her work is being rediscovered and enjoyed for its irony and pity observation. In some twenty-five novels, volumes of verse and other writings, she explored the pressures that constrain the lives of women. She defended the dispossessed and attacked those forces that enslaved rather than liberated the minds of men and women. People, she insisted, should think for themselves. "Dr Audrey Tate has degrees in both English Literature and Women's Studies. She teaches English Literature at the Centre for Continuing Education at the University of Sydney.".
