AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In three years Christina Stead has written three books—The Salzburg Tales, 1934, Seven Poor Men of Sydney, 1935, and The Beauties and Furies, 1936—and they bring a new note into Australian fiction. The first is a collection of stories, told by pilgrims to the Mozart festival in Salzburg and held together by a slight and purely formal framework. The stories are set in many places, real and mythical, in this world and the next, and some are Australian. Seven Poor Men of Sydney is a novel, a pattern of lives, of thoughts and emotions, shown against a curiously patterned backcloth of Sydney. The Beauties and Furies is the first volume of a proposed picture in three volumes of student love, and is set in Paris. (Introduction)

    'Christina Stead (1902-83) is regarded worldwide as one of Australia's greatest novelists. The New Yorker called her "the most extraordinary woman novelist produced by the English-speaking race since Virginia Woolf". This is the first volume to provide an overview of Stead criticism, including pioneering 'classic' essays and critical literature from the 1980s and '90s by a range of Australian, North American and English critics.'
