AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Travelling without Gods celebrates the life and work of one of Australia's best-loved contemporary poets, Chris Wallace-Crabbe.

'Wide-ranging in theme and context, it explores the imaginative effects of his writing. A tribute to Chris on the occasion of this eightieth birthday, and in many ways it suggests an alternative cultural history of Australia since the 1950s.

Containing biographical and critical pieces, poems (including new work by Chris) and essays that respond to his career 'Travelling without Gods takes account of the decades in which he has written. It illuminates, celebrates and critiques his work in its various contexts.

'Travelling without Gods also offers, importantly, a sample of Chris Wallace-Crabbe's unpublished journals, as well as photography that displays both his life and his relationship with the visual arts.

'Contributors include David Malouf, Patrick McCaughey, Judith Bishop, Alastair Niven, Peter Rose, Peter Goldsworthy and more.'
