AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The author focuses on Malouf's fictional and non-fictional prose 'as interventions strongly concerned with cultivating Australia's national imaginary'. Considering Malouf's writing as expressive of a refined literary habitus, she asks what this means for understanding his 'interventions as a writer who is also, and consequently, a widely respected public intellectual', and examines how his literary orientation addresses certain readerships and what the political limits are.
