AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Lyn McCredden's essay focuses on Tim Winton's latest novel, Eyrie 'charting a much darker, less redemptive narrative - the psychic disintegration of an individual and a family - than we have so far seen in Winton's work. The essay argues further that Eyrie is a novel about language and the limits of the linguistic to carry the full burden of meaning which humans often seek to imbue it.' (Editors introduction 9)

    '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)
