Review

"This specialized coverage may find a place primarily in collections strong in Australian writing, but any such collection will find the Cambrdige Companion to Australian Literature to be an invaluable compendium blending Australian poetry, fiction, biography, and drama from the last two centuries...Essential college-level reading for any serious and dedicated course in Australian literature." Library Bookwatch

Book Description

This book introduces in a lively and succinct way the major writers, literary movements, styles and genres that, at the beginning of a new century, are seen as constituting the field of 'Australian literature'. The book consciously takes a perspective that sees literary works not as aesthetic objects created in isolation by unique individuals, but as cultural products influenced and constrained by the social, political and economic circumstances of their times. It will be an indispensable reference for both national and international readers.
