Cambria Press Publication Review – David Malouf and the Poetic: His Earlier Writings

Congratulations to Dr. Yvonne Smith on the excellent review of her book, David Malouf and the Poetic: His Earlier Writings!

#MLA18

The Australian praises “this carefully researched book, part of a series edited by academic Susan Lever, Smith considers what the idea of a ‘poetic imagination’ might mean, with the aim of offering ‘fresh insights into the nature of [Malouf’s] creativ­ity — its tensions, struggles, and moment­s of breakthrough, as well as its potential boundaries’.”

The review also notes that “Smith is a perceptive reader [and] offers close studies of a number of Malouf’s works including fiction and poetry against ‘the context from which they arose’. … There is a wealth of careful analysis here. … This engaging, accessible study will well serve students and teachers. … meticulously researched.”

This book is in the Cambria Australian Literature book series (Series editor: Susan Lever).

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.
