This is the most comprehensive history of New Zealand literature to have been published. It offers chapters on the novel, poetry, and on the short story, which have been the staple of earlier histories and surveys, as well as sections on drama, non-ficiton, children's literature, popularliterature, and the history of publishing, patronage and literary magazines. In this major new edition, material is provided on the period from 1986-1996, and a new chapter has been included on literary scholarship, criticism, and theory.
