9 Steven Herrick’s humbling verse novel “The Simple Gift” is the story of sixteen year old Billy Luckett who willingly embraces homelessness after fleeing his drunken father. His escape leads to the town of Bendarat where he quickly forms meaningful relationships with two individuals from vastly different pockets of society. These emotional connections act to develop a distinct sense of self present in all three principle characters through the creation of a clear feeling of worth. For Billy this involves the fulfilment of his values realised in his relationship with Old Bill where as the more clearly defined purpose that he’s presence gives Caitlin allows both to mature a clear sense of identity as they grow in the coarse of the novel. In contrast Old Bill has lost his identity when he meets Billy at the Bendarat “Hilton” and it is only through the adoption of forgotten paternal instincts in their relationship that he recaptures his sense of self.
