Works about this Work

The Rhetoric of Personal Address in Michael Wilding's Short Fiction Don Graham , 2012 single work criticism
— Appears in: Antipodes , June vol. 26 no. 1 2012; (p. 99-101)
'Michael Wilding's prolific short story output, spanning over forty years, employs numerous innovative techniques, including stream of consciousness, meta-fictional self-reflexivity, collage, and many other forms of narrative strategy. But in some of his stories he utilizes an approach that seems to be unique. This is the technique of personal address, and it is on full display in his story 'Class Feeling.' A close analysis of this story shows the rhetoric of personal address in its richest form, though there are other stories that display partial deployments of such a strategy.' (Author's introduction)
