'Patrick White remains a key figure  in twentieth century literature and central to Australian literature as it is read and studied across the globe. Remembering Patrick White presents the first major study of the full range of White's work in over twenty-five years, and aims to bring White up to date for new generations of readers and scholars, with essays by twelve White scholars and associates, together with a current bibliography of critical work and commentary published since 1994. This collection revisits familiar territory from White scholarship — metaphysics, performance, suburban representations — as well as providing new approaches, such as queer readings and modernist aesthetics. Importantly, it takes up the opportunity provided by the recent hiatus in scholarly interest in White to reconsider the question of his location as a national writer, and to extend the reach of scholarly commentary beyond a national point of departure.'  (Introduction)

Patrick White is a writer of moods and perspectives and the essays collected here range in their focus over his public presentations, his formal challenges, his spiritual leanings and dramatic gestures. They examine the breadth and significance of White’s intellectual contribution and consider the ongoing legacy of his thought and his art within national and international frames. As a collection, they focus our attention on what Patrick White means at the juncture of the present, reading his work through contemporary critical perspectives that further underscore the dynamism and substance of his writing.
