y Shirley Hazzard : Literary Expatriate and Cosmopolitan Humanist Brigitta Olubas , Amherst : Cambria Press , 2012 Z1869117 2012 single work criticism 'This study brings together Hazzard's highly regarded literary fiction and her impassioned, polemical critiques of the United Nations through the rubrics of her humanist thought and her deep commitment to internationalist, cosmopolitan principles. Chapter 1 provides the first critical analysis of Hazzard's public writings, paying particular attention to their rhetorical and poetic structures and their moral appeals. Olubas then works through each of Hazzard's published works of fiction in turn.In chapter 2, she analyses the two collections of short stories through their shared concern with the question of institutions--bureaucracy and marriage--in modern life. Chapter 3 turns to Hazzard's two early novels, both set in Italy, and examines the appeal made in each to Romantic poetry, and to the ways narrative, desire and death play out across the stories of love. Chapters 4 and 5 are devoted to Hazzard's two great novels, The Transit of Venus and The Great Fire, respectively. The Transit of Venus is analysed as a melodrama, with particular focus on its complex narrative manipulation of concealment and revelation, and the ethical drive of its central love story. The final chapter focuses on the interplay of love and war in The Great Fire, and argues that this novel returns Hazzard's readers to her own journey, her departure from Australia at the pivotal points of post-war Asia: colonial Hong Kong and post-nuclear Hiroshima.'

The Vesuvian Imaginary : The Woman's Journey to Naples in Three Texts Lucy Dougan , 2009 single work criticism
— Appears in: On the Circumvesuviana (Poetry) ; and The Vesuvian Imaginary : The Woman's Journey to Naples in Three Texts (Dissertation) 2009;
'... The exegesis considers women's journeys to Naples in Roberto Rossellini's film Journey to Italy, Shirley Hazzard's novella The Bay of Noon and Mario Martone's film L'amore molesto. It examines how setting can elicit similar stories and comparable sets of representational concerns, tracing intertextual relationships between Rossellini's influential film and the other two texts, and locating these journeys inside wider contexts such as the Grand Tour, the motif of the heroine transformed by Italy, the construction of the Italian South as Other, and the long association between Naples and the feminine. It locates and traces a Vesuvian narrative from outsider to insider views that posits the central paradox of Naples as a site of catastrophe and a space that offers each heroine the chance of self-reconstruction. I argue in readings of the three texts that the central female protagonists turn inwards away from the famous panorama of the Bay of Naples to investigate ruined spaces and radical sites of anti-spectacle.'

y Romantic Ideas in the Fiction of Shirley Hazzard Dennis Howard Danvers , Arlington : 1984 Z989167 1984 single work thesis Author's abstract: Throughout her fiction, Shirley Hazzard asserts the importance of the individual life animated by passion instead of controlled by reason. A devotion to reason in her characters is often shown to be either a devotion to conformity or to power. The virtuous character in her work will quietly assert his own humanity without mindless obedience to the group and without the desire to dominate others. The power of love often serves to free her characters, at least for a time, from the control of reasonable conformity. Love is an occasion for both self-discovery and discovery of the richness of life, even though love cannot control life any more than reason can. The lives of Hazzard's characters may not be measured by their successes or failures, for her most admirable characters often suffer the worst fates, but by the integrity and humanity they maintain throughout their lives in spite of circumstances.
