Description - Australia's Writers and Poets by John Miller

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. This book is part of Exisle Publishing's Little Red Books series. Every title in the Little Red Books series provides an overview of key events, people or places in Australian history. They cover the essentials, bringing the reader up to speed on the most important, fascinating or intriguing facts. Appealing to everyone from students to pensioners who've always wanted to "know a bit about that", they're an essential part of every Australian bookshelf.
