Ex-library. Library stamps and markings. Wrappers laminated in clear plastic. Hinges reinforced with tape.; 328 pages. Various contributors. New Zealand literary criticism. Some illustrations. "'Writing At The Edge Of The Universe' looks at New Zealand literature at a time when it is thriving as never before. This book celebrates the maturity that places writing at the centre rather than the outskirts of national life and marks the coming of age of New Zealand literature. It also examines and questions the contentious issues about the state of our writing: the power of the creative writing programme, the globalising influence of the publishing industry and international styles, the directions of Maori writing, the place of nationalism in creative activity, the importance of state funding. Lively, various, contentious, considered - the essays in this book will deepen and extend debates about our literary culture, provide considered information for teachers, students and writers, and enrich the production of that literature."; 8vo
