By the Book: A Literary History of Queensland
Patrick Buckridge, Belinda McKay
Univ. of Queensland Press, 2007 - History - 390 pages
Queensland—a place of barren land and wild politics with subtropical weather, beaches, and natural wonders—is the subject of this rich literary history. Chronicling a wide range of literature, from the first days of European settlement to the present day, this collection touches upon thematic topics such as travel stories, writing for children, and indigenous writings. The role of institutions such as schools, public libraries, the press, and publishers, as well as how they have contributed to the shaping of Queensland’s literary development, is also included.
