The Oxford history of New Zealand literature in English
The first comprehensive history of New Zealand literature, this volume includes chapters on the novel, poetry, and the short story, as well as sections on drama, non-fiction, children's literature, popular literature, and the history of publishing, patronage, and literary magazines. While it features major authors, this history also contains information on little-known authors and forgotten periods in New Zealand's literary history, providing more comprehensive information on the subject than has ever appeared in a single volume before.
