Description
Spanning more than a century, Australian Literature crystallizes a spirit, style, and ethos found nowhere else in world literature. These captivating selections in Australian Literature come from major voices, both famous and lesser known, and encompass short stories, memoirs, novels and aboriginal writings. Resonant or wryly witty, charming or disturbing, they explore themes deeply rooted in the Australian experience--shaping the land, the legacies of the convict past, the displacement of the aborigine, the search for a national identity, sex, love, and commitment. Including these stories: "The Drover's Wife" by Henry Lawson "The Chosen Vessel" by Barbara Baynton "The Loaded Dog" by Henry Lawson From The Tree of Man by Patrick White "The Night We Watched for Wallabies" by Steele Rudd "A Gentleman's Agreement" by Elizabeth Jolley "Northern Belle" by Thea Astley "The Cooboo" by Katharine Susannah Prichard From Dr. Wooreddy's Prescription for Enduring the Ending of the World by Colin Johnson "Going Home" by Archie Weller From Wanamurraganya: The Story of Jack McPhee by Sally Morgan "Breaking a Man's Spirit" by Marcus Clarke "Absalom Day's Promotion" by Price Warung "The First Days" by A.
