AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This paper aims to continue and expand, while critiquing aspects of, previous feminist analyses of authors and authorship in Australia in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. ... I consider the number and proportion of published novel titles by Australian men and women from 1830 ... to 1939 to determine whether and what gender trends emerge. ... I explore gender trends in relation to all Australian novel titles published before 1939. ... [O]nly by considering the entire spectrum of texts and authors can we determine the ways in which gender impacts on the publication of Australian novels, and on constructions of Australian literary history. I have also attempted ... to explore trends in Australian literature in the context of other-national literary trends. Given Australia's close relationship with Britain ..., I have focussed on the ways in which British constructions of authorship and the novel influenced the Australian field ' (435-436).
