Trivia


Alas, Poor Yorick Club… Too Many Knew You Well


The very first literary club to be formed in Australia began in Melbourne in 1868. Formed by a group of journalists, some of which wrote for The Age and The Argus – a major paper back at this time - the group called themselves the Yorick Club, named after one of the characters in Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

The club began as an informal gathering at a café, but due to the stolid nature of the regular patrons there the founders of the club, which was considered rather avant-garde and bohemian at the time, decided to rent a room next door to the Argus office.

Originally intended as an exclusive club for members of the press, the group had to broaden their criteria for membership as there were not enough people who qualified to make up sufficient numbers.
