Promotional Information

An indispensable reference for the study of Australian literature.


'... the revolutionary ways in which Australian literary critics and writers have responded to the 'arrival' of feminism, postmodernism, postcolonialism and queer theory have created an exciting, complex and confident field of criticism - one that is given vibrant expression in The Cambridge Companion to Australian Literature.' Mary Ellen, Times Literary Supplement
