Marcus Clarke's Bohemia by Andrew McCann
Book DescriptionMarcus Clarke's Bohemia is the first major critical study of Marcus Clarke - arguably Australia's best known and most important nineteenth-century writer. It situates Clarke both within the bohemian culture of Melbourne and a burgeoning cosmopolitan print-culture extending beyond national borders. Marcus Clarke's Bohemia offers detailed readings of Clarke's major works, many of which have not previously been discussed, and traces the influence of other European writers on Clarke's writing. Importantly, it focuses on his engagement with the modernity of the place and time in which he worked and lived. McCann's in-depth study unearths the richness of Clarke's writing and brings nineteenth-century Melbourne to life. Impeccably researched and gracefully written, Marcus Clarke's Bohemia is challenging and compelling reading.
