David Malouf and the Poetic: His Earlier Writings

by Yvonne Smith

Reviews

"In this carefully researched book, part of a series edited by academic Susan Lever, Smith considers what the idea of a 'poetic imagination' might mean, with the aim of offering 'fresh insights into the nature of [Malouf’s] creativ­ity — its tensions, struggles, and moment­s of breakthrough, as well as its potential boundaries'. ... Smith is a perceptive reader [and] offers close studies of a number of Malouf’s works including fiction and poetry against 'the context from which they arose'. ... There is a wealth of careful analysis here. ... This engaging, accessible study will well serve students and teachers. ... meticulously researched." —The Australian
