Produktbeschreibung

This anthology includes five masterly written short stories about the most important strands of Australian history. While they all have their setting in Australia and deal specifically with Australian phenomena, they also have relevance to the post-colonial experience in general. Spanning a period of time from 1892 to 1986, they include a story that describes the harshness and inhumanity of the convict system (How Muster-Master Stoneman Earned His Breakfast by Price Warung, 1892), a short story that graphically describes the lonely and dangerous life of early settlers in the Outback (The Drover's Wife by Henry Lawson, 1892), two stories about the interaction of whites and aborigines in Australia (Marlene by Katharine Susannah Prichard, 1944 and Going Home by Archie Weller, 1986), and finally, a story that describes the suspicion and mistrust that old stock Australians harbour against the more recent immigrants (Neighbours by Tim Winton, 1985). Short Stories: How Muster-Master Stoneman Earned His Breakfast (William Astley aka Price Warung) The Drover s Wife (Henry Lawson) Marlene (Katherine Susannah Pritchard) Going Home (Archie Weller) Neighbours (Tim Winton)
