Annual Bibliography of Studies in Australian Literature: 1998

Hetherington, Carol, Petersson, Irmtraud, Australian Literary Studies

This is the thirty-sixth annual bibliography to be published in Australian Literary Studies. Primarily devoted to substantial commentaries useful to criticism and scholarship, the series aims to provide as complete a listing as possible of books and articles on Australian literature. It also lists selectively material in the Australian studies area, and the more important reviews and introductions, studies of Australian language, and new books (with reviews of them) by contemporary writers whose work has attracted substantial discussion. Coverage of overseas reviews is restricted by accessibility.

Some items omitted from previous annual bibliographies are included with the year given. The newspaper sources for the selection of reviews are restricted to the weekend issues of the Sydney Morning Herald, the Age and the Australian. Feature articles on authors and interviews from newspaper sources are not listed.

North American articles and substantial reviews are listed but a fuller listing of North American reviews is available in the annual `Bibliography of Australian Literature and Criticism Published in North America' in Antipodes.

Some authors are included for the first time in the Individual Authors section. Retrospective material on these authors will be added in the next updated edition of the ALS Guide to Australian Writers.

The bibliography is compiled by ALS research assistants in consultation with the editors. It draws on material from a variety of sources, including the University of Queensland's collections, the Australian National Bibliography, the MLA bibliography and the AUSLIT database. The compilers would like to thank the staff of the Fryer Library, University of Queensland, for their assistance, particularly in providing access to their collection. Our special thanks to Marianne Ehrhardt for careful proofreading and expert advice.
