    This first comprehensive selection of McAuley's prose and verse is arranged by the editor, McAuley's friend and colleague Leonie Kramer, into eight sections, 'each representing aspects of James McAuley's interests and experience ... Within each section the poetry is chronologically arranged; the prose is introduced in such a way as to suggest the relationship between McAuley's poetic preoccupations and his critical and intellectual position.' (Note pp.xxix-xxx). Each section is accompanied by a brief editorial note and extensive end-notes, including McAuley's own notes.

— Appears in: Southerly , June vol. 44 no. 2 1984; (p. 191-205)
"Believes that not enough has been said about the pessimism that activated much of McAuley's writing. Analyzes representative work to show the preoccupation with despair and doubt, in spite of McAuley's Catholicism. Concludes that while the pessimism helped to shape the poetry, the poetry helped to overcome the pessimism." (Robert Ross, Australian Literary Criticism, 1945-1988, p. 254.)
