Abstract

South in the World is a dialogue between the earthly and the ethereal, reality and enchantment, body and spirit - those southern and northern poles by which we navigate the world. The poems in this collection speak to family, love, and daily living, as well as a world blighted by cataclysm and touched by redemption. Lisa Jacobson is an award-winning poet and fiction writer. Poems in this book have either won or have been shortlisted for major awards: the 2011 Bruce Dawe National Poetry Prize, the 2013 Montreal International Poetry Prize, and the 2013 Fish International Poetry Prize (U.K.).

Abstract

The contemporary study of Australian literature ranges widely across issues of general cultural studies, the politics of identity (both ethnic and gendered), and the position of Australia within wider postcolonial contexts. This volume intervenes in the most significant of issues in these areas from a variety of international perspectives.

Abstract

After decades of strict, puritanical censorship, Australian writers are free to address sexual issues. But sex remains a controversial and disturbing topic-its representation in poetry or fiction can never be free of ambiguities and still requires a variety of literary strategies to be made acceptable. Messengers of Eros examines those strategies and offers close readings of many Australian literary texts. It revisits classics such as Coonardoo, Capricornia or Such Is Life as well as major ...

Abstract

Lesbia Harford (1891-1927) has occupied only a small place in Australian literary history. For decades, she was utterly forgotten, yet, when she died at 36, she left behind three notebooks containing some of the finest lyric poems ever written in Australia. Harford's writing looks both forwards and backwards, blending Pre-Raphaelite influences and plain-speaking with unusual subtlety. At the same time, she was bound inextricably to the period in which she lived. War in Europe, changing attitudes to religion, the suffrage movement, and widespread social upheaval all helped make her one of the f

Abstract

Spanning poems written in the United States, Central America, Europe, and Australia, The Hazards is a dazzling and inventive collection. Opening with a vision of a leveret's agonizing death by myxomatosis and closing with a lover disappearing into dangerous waters, Holland-Batt reflects a predatory world rife with hazards, both real and imagined. Her cosmopolitan poems careen through diverse geographical territory-from haunted postcolonial landscapes in Australia to brutal animal hierarchies in the cloud forests of Nicaragua, the still Danish interiors of Hammershøi and the serial killer stalk

Abstract

In this, the first collection of ecocritical essays devoted to Australian contexts and their writers, Australian and US scholars explore the transliteration of land and sea through the works of Australian authors and through their own experiences. The littoral zone is the starting point in this fresh approach to reading literature organised around the natural environment—rainforest, desert, mountains, coast, islands, Antarctica. There’s the beach, where sexual and spiritual crises occur; the Western Australian wheatbelt; deserts, camel trekking, and the transformation of a salt flat into an inland island; New Age literature that ‘appropriates’ Aboriginal culture as the healing poultice for an ailing West; a re-examination of pastoralism; an inquiry into whether Judith Wright's work can “persuade us to rejoice” in the world; the Limestone Plains, home of the bush capital and the bogong moth; tropical North Queensland; national parks where “the mountains meet the sea”; temperate islands, with their history of sealing, Soldier Settlement, and sea country pastoral; and Antarctica, where a utopian vision gives way to an emphasis on its ‘timeless’ icescape as minimalist backdrop for human dramas. The author-terrain includes poets, playwrights, novelists, and non-fiction writers across the range of contexts constituting the littoral zone of ‘Australia’.
