Cambria Press Forthcoming Publication on David Malouf

A new book on the celebrated Australian writer David Malouf will be out soon. Winner of the Neustadt International Prize for Literature, the International IMPAC Dublin Literary Award, the inaugural Australia-Asia Literary Award, and the Australia Council Award for Lifetime Achievement in Literature, Malouf’s works include novels, poetry, nonfiction, plays, and libretti.

His earlier works provide much insight into Malouf’s development as a writer, and the forthcoming book David Malouf and the Poetic: His Earlier Writings Yvonne Smith uncovers what the terms “poetic”, “poetic imagination” and “inner and outer ways” imply for his development as a writer. Making use of some of his correspondence, diaries, and drafts of work-in-progress, Yvonne Smith takes into fuller account the way his works relate to each other and to the circumstances in which they were written.

Cambria Press Book Review! Christian Mysticism and Australian Poetry is “a groundbreaking study”!

Cambria Press academic publisher

This book is in the Cambria Studies in Australian Literature Series headed by Susan Lever.

Cambria Press congratulates Toby Davidson on the glowing review of his book, Christian Mysticism and Australian Poetry, which JASAL has hailed for being a “groundbreaking study which speaks to those engaged in literature, religious and cultural studies and, most directly, to those exploring the interface between poetry and the sacred … A particularly pleasing feature of Christian Mysticism and Australian Poetry is the attention given to women poets … Davidson, in touching on some fifty Australian poets and a multitude of mystics, is discerning and generous in his interpretations and avoids the temptation of forcing his subjects to serve his own theories. His bibliography should prove invaluable to future researchers … His book will encourage Australian and global recognition of mystical poetries and scholarship.”

Below is an excerpt from the book: Postwar Australian poetry critics typically refuse to identify what they, or indeed a chosen poet, may actually mean by mystical, mysticism, and the application of these terms. Some critics bring their own interpretations of mysticism to their readings without declaring them, and almost all discussions fail to allow for historical shifts in the way mysticism was popularised and perceived. Read more now through the Cambria Free Preview.

This book is part of the Cambria Studies in Australian Literature (General Editor: Susan Lever).

Yet Another Fantastic Journal Review for Shirley Hazzard: Literary Expatriate and Cosmopolitan Humanist!

Cambria Press congratulates Brigitta Olubas on the outstanding review by JASAL on her book Shirley Hazzard: Literary Expatriate and Cosmopolitan Humanist, which reinforces what an important book this is for scholars in contemporary literature.

Already hailed for being “scrupulously scholarly” in another review, JASAL praises the book because it “demonstrates what a gift intelligent, passionately engaged and theoretically attuned literary criticism can be.” The review also lauds the work because “Olubas helps us to grasp the warp and weft of Hazzard’s ethical concerns, channelled through her commitment to the word and to her art, in her historical context and development over time. She shows us how these threads are intricately woven together, at every stage, in the realisation of what now appears as an astonishingly imaginative fictional universe, one that also makes its urgent address to the concerns of the contemporary world.”

This book is in the Cambria Studies in Australian Literature, headed by Dr. Susan Lever, author of David Foster: The Satirist of Australia.

Brilliant Book Review for Shirley Hazzard: Literary Expatriate and Cosmopolitan Humanist!

Cambria Press congratulates Dr. Brigitta Olubas on yet another fabulous review on her highly praised book Shirley Hazzard: Literary Expatriate and Cosmopolitan Humanist!

The journal Contemporary Women’s Writing praises the book, stating that:

“To read Brigitta Olubas’s Shirley Hazzard: Literary Expatriate and Cosmopolitan Humanist must be to have something like the experience of the readers of feminist recovery projects in the 1970s … As the first book on Hazzard, Olubas’s monograph makes an important contribution to contemporary literary scholarship. Yet the book’s achievement far exceeds its initiatory work … will certainly be of interest to scholars of contemporary Australian literature, new modernist studies, and gender studies. But both Hazzard and Olubas’s monograph on her are out of bounds – in the best sense. This book extends far beyond any national, aesthetic, or ideological disciplinary categories. Like Hazzard, it should travel far.”

The book has also been hailed as being “scrupulously scholarly” by The Australian––read more at the Cambria Press blog post about it––and is in the Cambria Press Australian Literature Series headed by Dr. Susan Lever, author of the highly acclaimed book David Foster: The Satirist of Australia. Not surprisingly, the book was also very well received at the 2013 MLA Cambria Press book exhibit.
