In 1971, having published four acclaimed novels, Elizabeth Harrower withdrew her last, In Certain Circles, from print. For four decades it remained unread until, in 2014, it was published for the first time. The rediscovery of In Certain Circles sparked a revival of international interest in her work alongside the republication of her previous novels.
Elizabeth Harrower: Critical Essays is the first sustained study of this acclaimed Australian author. It brings together two celebrated fiction writers and ten leading critics of Australian literature. Together these essays provide an introduction to the extraordinary imaginative and intellectual project of Harrower’s work. They consider her treatment of time and place; her depiction of women, men, and their interactions in the mid twentieth century; her engagement with world history; and her nimble, complex, profoundly modern approach to plot, character and genre. Together they offer new insights into a writer at the crossroads of modernism and postmodernism, and invite readers to read and re-read Harrower’s work in a new light.
