FALS: Monograph No 11: Place, Region and Community by Bruce Bennett

Place, Region and Community by Bruce Bennett, 1985

How important is place in Australia? Does it matter? What difference does it make if I write, or speak, from Townsville or Perth or Alice Springs; or from Esperance, or from the edge of Lake Disappointment? Do these names mean any more than squiggles of writing on a map? What influences, what associations do they have for you, for me? Does place count any more?

FALS: Cleveland Bay New Writing No 3: Love and the Outer World, Selected Poems by RG Hay

Love and the Outer World, Selected Poems by RG Hay, 1984

In 1968 R.G. Hay was described as a widely published young Queensland poet. In the past sixteen years he has written steadily and been published even more widely, and a selection of his poems now makes a timely appearance. Although Hay's work takes some of its character from his native Central and Northern Queensland where he has lived for most of his life, he thinks of himself not as a regional but as an Australian poet. Reading Love and the Outer World we are struck by the unique Australian tone of Hay's voice as the poems move from one form to another. With an academic background, and writing criticism himself, Hay commands an overview of the possibilities available to poetry in the English language. Each poem here finds a place within a different mode of these possibilities, but the distinctive timbre of the poet's mind ensures that no poem merely echoes, however elegantly or drily, the traditional mode. Rather, like all good poets, in shaping language and form to his needs he extends the possibilities of Australian poetry.

FALS: Monograph No 7: Three Absences in Australian Writing by Chris Wallace-Crabbe

Three Absences in Australian Writing by Chris Wallace-Crabbe, 1983

These three lectures will be concerned with what strike me as absences, or lacunae, in the literature of this country.

I want to suggest three areas of literary experience, three characteristics of literary practice in which Australian writing seems comparatively lacking;… that of romantic love in our fiction, that of fully developed metaphysical views in our poetry, and that of forging radically new forms in prose or verse. The last of these, incidentally, is the one to which I admit the most exceptions.

FALS: Monograph No 9: The Last Explorer: The Life and Work of Ernest Favenc by Cheryl Frost

The Last Explorer: The Life and Work of Ernest Favenc by Cheryl Frost, 1983

In some respects Ernest Favenc was remarkable, and in others merely representative. In the 1870s and 80s he explored some of the remaining unknown parts of Australia, and he wrote histories, so he may be interesting to historians. He wrote stories, novels and verse, and so has a claim on the attention of literary critics. Since he was also a journalist, his ideas and attitudes reveal something about Australian society at the end of the last century. Finally, the experiences which shaped his attitudes took place mostly in North Queensland, and his life and writings therefore throw light on the development of the region.

FALS: Monograph No 8: Modern Australian Styles by Mark O'Connor

Modern Australian Styles by Mark O'Connor, 1982

Why do Australians read so little of their own poetry? Fifteen years ago the answer would have been the same as to why they didn't go to see plays set in their own country: a feeling that the local product was bound to be inferior. Today if you ask the same question, the answer would be: we approve of the home product and the local theme, and we've tested both. In drama, the novel, and the short story we're enthusiastic ; but in poetry we're rather disillusioned.

FALS: Monograph No 2: In the Wild with Samuel Butler or A Man of Three Centuries by Roger Parsell

In the Wild with Samuel Butler or A Man of Three Centuries by Roger Parsell, 1981

These three essays on Samuel Butler (1835-1902) in this series are intended to reflect my own reaction to three areas of controversy which have been given a considerable amount of attention by literary critics and historians over a span of time now exceeding 100 years. In addressing the question of Butler's identity, distinctive kind of literary art, and critical reputation, however, I have deliberately avoided trying to present anything even like a sketchy consensus of critical opinion. I shall, from time to time, make reference to a critic's view, but on the whole I intend simply to speak only as one reader who has found in Butler's works an almost inexhaustible fount of intriguing observations, provocative humour, and oddly satisfying subversion.
