Richard Flanagan: Critical Essays
Edited by Robert Dixon
Sydney University Press
ISBN: 9781743325827

Richard Flanagan: Critical Essays is the first book to be published about the life and work of this major world author. Written by twelve leading critics from Australia, Europe and North America, these richly varied essays offer new ways of understanding Flanagan’s contribution to Tasmanian, Australian and world literature.

Flanagan’s fictional worlds offer empathetic, often poignant, renderings of those whose voices have been lost beneath official accounts of history, stories from a small region that have made their mark on a global scale. Considering his seven novels as well as his non-fiction, journalism and correspondence, this collection examines the historical and geographical factors that have shaped Flanagan’s representation of Tasmanian identity.

Together they offer new insights into a determinedly regional writer, and the impact that he has had on a local, national and global scale.

About the author Robert Dixon, FAHA, is professor of Australian literature at the University of Sydney.
