Henry Archibald Hertzberg Lawson (17 Jun 1867 – 2 Sep 1922) was an Australian writer and poet. Lawson is among the best-known Australian poets and fiction writers of the colonial period and is often called Australia's "greatest short story writer". Like the majority of Australians, Lawson lived in a city, but had had plenty of experience in outback life, in fact, many of his stories reflected his experiences in real life. Henry Lawson was featured on the first (paper) Australian ten dollar note issued in 1966. Bermaigui is short, “sketch” story by Henry Lawson. It describes a very picturesque evening of Bermagui, a small coast-town in Australia. Sun rolls over the horizon, and both the town and the nature around it show themselves at their best. But then darkness falls, and picture sets in motion, begins to change, plays with different colours and shapes. Indeed, Bermangau is where the mystery was - and where mystery is.
