THE COLONIAL JOURNALS: AND THE EMERGENCE OF AUSTRALIAN LITERARY CULTURE BY KEN GELDER AND RACHAEL WEAVER

‘Rachael Weaver and Ken Gelder have trawled through the archives of colonial Australia’s journals to reproduce articles, stories, poems and editorials documenting the emergence of Australia’s literary culture … anyone who reads contemporary Australian literature – or, even more so, devours local literary journals – or has an interest in history, will find this book illuminating. ★★★★’                                –Books + Publishing Magazine
Colonial Australia produced a vast number of journals and magazines that helped to create an exuberant literary landscape. They were filled with lively contributions by many of the key writers and provocateurs of the day – and of the future, such as Marcus Clarke, Rolf Boldrewood, Ethel Turner and Katharine Susannah Prichard.
The Colonial Journals includes 50 colour image plates of the journal covers, including Colonial MonthlyAustralian Women’s Magazine and Domestic JournalSydney Quarterly MagazineCosmos,Bulletin, and New Idea for Australian Women.
