AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Henderson argues that the primary concern of Phillips's essay 'The Cultural Cringe' was not the production but the reception of Australian writing and that the essay is 'underpinned by a reception theory that begets a culturally specific hsitory of reading'. His aim is 'to distil that theory, and I will do so by drawing together the history of Phillips's use of the term and his late characterization of it in specific psychoanalytic terms' (127).

    'This year's Best Australian Essays offers riveting snapshots of the nation's "current loves and angers, its art and myths and amusements and gender concerns - and its propensity for bushfires."

    'From Alex Miller on the creative imagination to Mark Dapin on crime myths, from Amanda Hooton on Miss Universe to Tim Flannery on the inner lives of animals, this is a collection that takes the pulse of the nation's writers and thinkers and finds them in rude health.'
