AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'"If the essay should come to displace the novel in popular favour, it would be a clear sign of an advance in civilization." - Walter Murdoch

Sir Walter Murdoch was Foundation Professor of English at The University of Western Australia. Throughout the twentieth century, he was also a bestselling author: in the weekly essays he contributed to The Argus and other newspapers and in the books that sold in their tens of thousands.

Irony was a key element in his approach, as was a lightness of touch in the treatment of his topics, from literature and social commentary to discourse on language. This selection by Imre Salusinszky restores this wonderful writer's work back into print for a new generation of readers.' (Publisher's blurb)
