AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This chapter focuses on Winton's depiction of fatherhood and father-son relationships in his first collection of short fiction, Scission.' O'Reilly argues 'that Winton presents non-traditional fathers and complex father-son relationships in order to question and challenge Australian cultural norms regarding fatherhood and masculinity.'

    'In Tim Winton: Critical Essays, the editors have brought together an international lineup of scholars—new voices and established—to consider the work of Australia’s most celebrated and loved contemporary novelist.

    'From Shallows to Eyrie, this book extends beyond Winton’s singular novels and short stories, into thematics identified across his body of work, thinking through his place and reception in Australian and world literature.

    'Exploring themes in Winton’s fictional works such as childhood, masculinity, fatherhood, beauty, love, death, water and landscape, the contributors explore, question and debate their contexts in order to understand more fully what is appealing, or unconsciously submerged, or worthy of celebration or interrogation.

    'Tim Winton is both a popular and literary success, and this volume has been conceived for a critical audience of professionals and students, as well as for the readers who have made Tim Winton a household name.' (Publication summary)
