Three distinguished scholars present a unique selection of key documents in Australian literary criticism from the second half of the twentieth-century. Documents are grouped into four time periods with recurring thematic subheadings to identify continuities and mark genuine innovations.
This new approach to the mapping of Australia's cultural and literary history will encourage the inclusion of the history of criticism as a standard part of research training wherever Australian literature is studied. The editor's comprehensive introduction will spark new debates in Australian literary studies.
