Introduction
The Thorn Birds is written by the Australian female writer Colleen McCullough, who was born in Wellington, New South Wales, Australia on June 1, 1937. In 1977, she made painstaking efforts to write the novel The Thorn Birds on the basis of her entire life experience. At the beginning of the novel, there are the words: There is a legend about a bird which sings just once in his life, more sweetly than any other creatures on the face of the earth. From the moment it leaves the nest, it searches for a thorn tree, and does not rest until it has found one. Then singing among the savage branches, it impales itself upon the largest, sharpest spines. And dying......But the whole world still listens, and God in his heaven smiles. 
The Thorn Birds is a saga novel, with Dregheda of the blueprint, portraying the broad pastures, the primitive and magnificent forest scenery of Australia and the vivid family life.  It records the influence on people ascribing to the developed animal husbandry, wool industry and religion, and witnesses the great depression, World War II  in 1930, as well as the backstage combat of the Church of Rome. Love and hate of three generations were stretched in the brisk and fluent words. The Thorn Birds exaggerates the grief at separation and joy in union, as well as the interchange of sea and land, which also reflects the menial family status of women in Australia. It is the half-century’s poignant love song of Maggie and Ralph that strings all these messy details. It caused a sensation immediately after its publication.
