AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Patrick White: Critical Issues celebrates Patrick White’s birth centenary year 2012. Revisiting White years after his death suggests an endless interest of readers in him. His unending quest to address both the physical and the metaphysical, in order to unravel the unresolved mysteries of life, has triggered the sensibility of scholars and readers who return to him time and again. Both obscure and complex, a writer who expects to know the “extraordinary behind the ordinary”, Patrick White poses a challenge to readers who align with him in the journey to the unknown lands—the journey that opens up a world of reality and truth behind what apparently seems to be dull and dreary. This book attempts to understand various facets of White’s writings. It also offers new perceptions by establishing comparative connections with different disciplines worldwide. It will be useful for scholars and researchers working on White, readers interested in White and scholars of comparative literature.'
