Notes

  • Dedication: To Michael, in memory
  • Introduction: 'The Australian vision leads to a different relationship with the earth and one's fellow man: one in which the self is seen to be infinitely small ... My selection of Australian contributors emphasizes the work of younger writers. This reflects the upsurge in creative activity among this country's newer poets. It is, also, a reflection on the fact that Australia seems to have a relative paucity of writers born in the 1920s who are still active....' .Thomas Shapcott, Ipswich, Queensland April 1975. (xxiii-xxxiii).

Works about this Work

American Dreams and the University of Queensland Press Deborah Jordan , 2010 single work criticism
— Appears in: Reading Across the Pacific : Australia-United States Intellectual Histories 2010; (p. 323-338)

'The University of Queensland Press was transformed from a merely scholarly into a creative independent Australian publisher partly through the agency of the American publisher Frank Thompson. In the explosive days of the late 1960s and early 1970s, and with Australians' complex fascination with United States, Thompson embodied the democratic challenge to the old British dominated regime on campus and in publishing circles. This paper will explore pivotal books published by UQP notably Thomas Shapcott's Contemporary American and Australian Poetry in 1976; UQP's development of the American market with the distribution of UQP literary fiction and the establishment of an American office; and co-publishing with American publishers and editing Australian books for American readers in a different hemisphere. Thompson's own assessment of his successes and failures will be contextualised in terms of political developments and those issues long associated with Australian literature - environmental representation and expatriatism.'
