The Auckland University Press anthology of New Zealand literature by Jane Stafford( )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 1,243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From Polynesian Mythology to the Yates' Garden Guide, from Allen Curnow to Alice Tawhai, from Jessie Mackay to Alison Wong, from Julius Vogel to Albert Wendt, from the letters of Wiremu Te Rangikaheke to the notebooks of Katherine Mansfield - Māori, Pākehā, Pasifika, and Asian New Zealanders have struggled for two and a half centuries to work the English language into some sort of truth about this place. The Auckland University Press Anthology of New Zealand Literature brings together for the first time in one volume this country's major writing, from the earliest records of exploration and encounter to the globalised, multicultural present. Editors Jane Stafford and Mark Williams range across novels and stories, poems and plays, letters and diaries, comics and songs to collect the defining stuff of our literary heritage. The contents will delight and provoke: Erewhon and The Heart of the Bush; Man Alone and 'No Ordinary Sun'; The God Boy and Hicksville; 'The Gumboot Song' and The Vintner's Luck. Through an imaginative selection and illuminating introductions, Stafford and Williams provide new paths into our writing and our country"--Publisher information
Patrick White by Mark Williams( Book )

18 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This critical study considers Patrick White's 12 published novels, and traces the connections between his life and work. The novels from The Aunt's Story to Memoirs of Many in One are considered in terms of a number of overlapping contexts: White's ambivalence about sexuality, nationality and modernity; his evolving sense of the possibilities of the novel as a form; and the continuing presence of the themes, experiments and influences of the 1930s shaping his mature fiction

Maoriland : New Zealand literature, 1872-1914 by Jane Stafford( Book )

9 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Maoriland: New Zealand Literature 1872-1914 argues that glib dismissals of the past do disservice to the present, seeing in the writing of Maoriland something more complex and more diverse: the beginnings of a self-consciously New Zealand literature which, adapts European literary forms to the new place."--Jacket
Dirty silence : aspects of language and literature in New Zealand : essays arising from the University of Waikato Winter Lecture Series of 1990( Book )

7 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book consists of twelve essays arising from the University of Waikato Winter Lecture Series of 1990. Their principal concern is with issues of language use in New Zealand. Since the lecture series itself was held during the country's sesquicentenary, its theme focused on the two languages at the very heart of current debate--te reo Maori and New Zealand English. The contributors include scholars and writers living and working in New Zealand who offer contrasting but complementary perspectives on the languages in question. The essays fall into two groups of six. The first of these concentrates on broadly linguistic aspects, with essays on the historical development of Maori and New Zealand English, contemporary issues affecting the linguistic character of both languages, and matters of political and social concern in their everyday use. The second group is more literary in focus, exploring oral and narrative traditions of early Pakeha writers on the one hand, and the contrasting traditions of Pakeha and Maori authors on the other. Voices to be heard in recent Pakeha poetry and Maori haka, ngeri, and waiata-a-ringa are considered in conclusion. This book should prove of interest to students and teachers at upper secondary and tertiary level, as well as general readers keen to expand their awareness of the rich and complex heritage of language in New Zealand
Opening the book : new essays on New Zealand writing( Book )

5 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 174 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the last three decades New Zealand literature has changed radically as New Zealand has become more diverse and more independent of its colonial origins. In place of a small literary culture - nationalist, realist, Pakeha and masculine in outlook - we now find a variety of styles, kinds, voices. In response to these changes, writing about New Zealand literature has also changed. Since the mid 1980s criticism in New Zealand has sought to come to terms with feminism, theory (of several varieties), culture studies, postmodernism, post-colonialism indigenous writing." "This book collects new essays by writers and critics who have taken part in this process of assimilation and debate. The aim is not to announce a new orthodoxy or to impose some imported critical methodology on local writing. Rather the book shows how some well-known New Zealand authors - Mansfield, Sargeson, Hyde, Frame - can be read and reinterpreted from a number of critical perspectives and how different types of writing can be freshly reconsidered. The essays are lively, various, challenging. They re-examine our past, question long-held assumptions, analyse the contemporary scene, and indicate new directions."--Jacket
