Australia and New Zealand
Pennsylvania State University Press, Jan 1, 1970 - Literary Criticism - 243 pages
In the past decade there has been a tremendous growth of interest in the literature of British Commonwealth countries, yet the standard histories of English literature have never given more than passing attention - if any - to works produced outside Britain and the United States. This new series, inaugurated with the volume on Australia and New Zealand described below, has been initiated to fill a longstanding need; future volumes will survey the literatures of Canada, the Caribbean countries, Africa, and Asia.
