Most widely held works by Jennifer Strauss
The Oxford literary history of Australia( Book )

10 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 507 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Oxford Literary History of Australia is an up-to-date reference for readers, writers, teachers, and students. The contributors - drawn from a range of backgrounds and geographical locations - rethink the landscapes of Australian literature in an engaging style and take into account contemporary theories of literature and associated art forms. All of them have demonstrated expertise in literary-historical research and a capacity to write clearly and engagingly. Their aim is to produce a highly readable and authoritative reference guide." "The Oxford Literary History of Australia tells many stories. In the opening section the initial phase in the life of language in Australia is explored through the settling-in of English and its interaction with Aboriginal languages. The last section takes up this story again by outlining the unsettling of English in the face of changing technologies, trade and immigration patterns, and institutional pressures."--Jacket
Boundary conditions : the poetry of Gwen Harwood by Jennifer Strauss( Book )

10 editions published between 1991 and 1996 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Judith Wright by Jennifer Strauss( Book )

10 editions published in 1995 in English and Spanish and held by 226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Judith Wright is not only one of the most significant and best-loved of Australian twentieth century poets, with a reputation both at home and abroad. She is a major figure as a literary intellectual actively engaged in some of the most challenging issues facing Australian society - notably environmental protection and land rights for Aborigines. This study looks at her poetry in the context of her work as activist and as critic, and offers a reading of her poetry as a central aspect of her work, but one always intrinsically connected to her view of what is important in the totality of human life. Because she has stated that she will write no more poetry, and has kept to that decision, it is now possible to see the work of this Australian writer in its completed pattern. The critical discussion is accompanied by a chronology of her life and a select bibliography

The collected verse of Mary Gilmore by Mary Gilmore( Book )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

AU Author. Mary Gilmore was Australia's foremost woman poet during the first half of the twentieth century and it was as a poet that she wanted to be remembered when she died in 1962. More attention however has been given in recent years to her long and eventful life, her role as feminist, her championing of Australian literature as an instrument of national identity and her activism for various forms of social justice. This two-volume edition honours her wishes by bringing together for the first time all of Mary Gilmore's copious published poetry. Volume one covers the period from 1887 to 1929. These poems reflect her affiliation to the Bulletin in the value placed on pioneering bush traditions, the Australian working man, and the ANZAC tradition, but are also vitally and distinctively interested in the roles and rights of women
