FALS: Colin Roderick Lecture 1986: Brian Matthews
Romantics and Mavericks: The Australian Short Story by Brian Matthew, 1986. Also recorded as Monograph No 14.
The Colin Roderick Lectures, sponsored by the Townsville Foundation for Australian Literary Studies, are delivered annually by a distinguished Australian writer or academic at James Cook University, and subsequently published by the Foundation. The series is named for Emeritus Professor Colin Roderick, Foundation Professor of English at James Cook University and distinguished Lawson scholar.
Dr Brian Matthews, the 1986 Lecturer, is Reader in English at Fhinders University, and a former Vice-President of the Association for the Study of Australian Literature. He is the author of The Receding Wave: Henry Lawson's Prose, and of many articles and reviews on Australian literature. His biography of Louisa Lawson is due for publication in 1987.
The modest price and format of the Foundation's monographs are designed to make them as widely available as possible.
