    The Glugs of Gosh is a satirical gallop through the world of the inhabitants of Gosh, a world very similar to Australian life in 1917, when it was written. C. J. Dennis exhibits an unerring eye for immortalising the little failings and idiosyncrasies of human nature in entertaining, rollicking verse.
