The Story of Our Rich Literary Heritage
From the iconic poems of Banjo Paterson to today’s international bestsellers by Peter Carey and Patrick White, Australian literature has reflected the changes in Australia’s national development, and today it stands proudly on the world stage. At the same time, Indigenous writing has come into its own, with authors such as Oodgeroo Noonuccal giving a powerful voice to the Aboriginal experience. Australia’s Writers and Poets looks at the men and women who have created this rich literary tradition and celebrates the incredible diversity of their writing.
This Little Red Book gives a terrific background to Australian writing, surprises with its stories, and says a lot about what it is to be Australian.
