AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Analyses women's spirituality in the larger context of Australian Desert Spirituality, concluding that women have been developing their own forms of religious expression. General chapters examine'malestream' spirituality, on the one hand, and explore the way 'real' women express their religious and spiritual experiences in non-fiction; the next three chapters offer a close investigation of the fictions of Thea Astley, Elizabeth Jolley and Barbara Hanrahan.
