Behind the Scenes
First published in The Bulletin on 8 April, 1893.
What a truly wonderful piece of work. Whilst written about the actor, the words of this poem can be applied to every field of human enterprise. The message is a simple one. There is no right royal road to success. Hard work is the key.
