A Black Sheep is the original serialised version of Ada Cambridge's best known novel A Marked Man. Following the fortunes of Richard Delavel as a rebellious Oxford undergraduate in 1850s England and a still restless mmiddle-aged family man in 1880s Sydney, the story presents his life and loves, work and leisure, beliefs and hopes against a background of constraints and opportunities in Britain and Australia. A powerful creation of an iconoclastic character in search of professional fulfillment, A Black Sheep is also a complext reflection on marriage ties and social obligations and a lively evocation of late colonial Sydney. Serialised in the Melbourne Age in 1888, its title was changed and parts of the text rewritten for the Heinnemann edition of 1890 on which all subsequent editions have until now been based. Providing the text as Australian readers first encountered it, this Colonial Texts Series edition also has an introduction tracing the publishing history, a textual apparatus displaying variants in the later version and explanatory notes to help readers appreciate significant allusions and quotations that might not be as familiar today as they were in 1888.
