AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In this autobiographical piece Clunies Ross recalls incidents that have formed the climax of Living Together and are narrated in Wilding's 'Oxford stories', and he discloses their auto/biographical connections. Reminiscing about the experiences of young Australian expatriate writers in England in the 1960s, he emphasises that it is difficult to 'distinguish memories of stories from memories of things happening' (240).

    From the editors' introduction: Michael Wilding, the distinguished teacher, critic and writer, retired in 2000 from his Personal Chair in English and Australian Literature at the University of Sydney. Two of his former colleagues, David Brooks and Brian Kiernan, have put together this Festschrift as a mark of honour to his brilliant career.

    A number of his colleagues and students have written about Michael's achievements as a scholar and critic in various fields, and many among them about his attendant interest in the politics of writing and criticism. These essays on a vast range of themes in English and Australian literatures (including the ones on Michael's own novels and short stories), some on European literature, and one on its interaction with Asian literature have been grouped together in broadly chronological sequence according to topic.

    The last section of this volume has essays on Professor Wilding's parallel career as a creative writer, fiction by some of the contributors and a variety of memoirs.
