Despite its epic scope, Paterson is often chosen by nonspecialists, such as the social critic Robert Coles, as the way in to a discovery of Williams' exuberant and humane career as a poet.
A modernist classic, Paterson is a nativist's answer to the cosmopolitan Pound and Eliot, "a reply to Greek and Latin with the bare hands." By exploring the local, Williams sought to descry the universal and to find in city and landscape symbolic analogues for the essential issues of human life.
Paterson is the magnum opus of a man who forgot that one of the ways that poets are divided are those who are obsessed with the art of poesy, and those obsessed with its craft.

This was what some of the toadying press called "Paterson's peculiar strike," or "unexplainable phenomena."

 Mary-Anne Paterson: Me - PopMatters Music Review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Though her voice is similar to Bunyan’s, her arrangements are less fully fleshed-out, with the sparse musical accompaniment (mostly flute and light percussion) played by what Paterson describes in the liner notes as “a group of buskers from the local tube station.
Paterson’s high voice has a certain formal distance to it, but balances this against a warm undercurrent of less detached regret, and the medieval-sounding phrasing leaves one practically expecting a madrigal next.
While Me failed to bestow riches and fame upon Paterson, her helpful liner notes reveal that her interest lay with neither; the album was recorded only in the hopes of raising funds for an arts center for children (she worked as a teacher).

 Australia's Bard @ National Geographic Magazine   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Paterson took up his pen again and began to write, not a letter this time but a little gem of a ballad, for he had a sideline writing humor and verse for a popular weekly magazine under a pen name, "the Banjo"—a name he borrowed from a racehorse his family used to own.
While Banjo Paterson's works captured the hearts and minds of his countrymen and helped define the Australian bush for the rest of the world, Banjo's friend and colleague Henry Lawson (his most famous work is "The Drover's Wife") is usually considered a finer writer.
In 1892 Paterson, Lawson, and a few of their colleagues carried on a lively exchange for three months in the Bulletin magazine, discussing the joys and perils of bush life in verse.
