AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'At the State Library of Queensland on Friday 6 June 2014, David Malouf gave an address as a part of his SW Brooks visiting lectureship at the University of Queensland. The event was also part of Queensland Week and was one of a series of events honouring Malouf ’s contribution to Australia’s literary culture. Malouf opened his inspiring talk by reflecting on how recent public events associated with his 80th birthday had given him cause to think about the complex factors at play in the creation of what has become his ‘body of work’. The metaphor of the body in this phrase struck him as significant because of the sort of writer he is.' (Author's introduction)
