This three volume set brings together the correspondence of Henry Handel Richardson in its entirety. The letters shed much new light on Richardon's biography, her artistic methods, her personal life, her friendships (and antagonisms), her response to Australian readers and to expatriation, and her efforts to maintain a literary life apart from her personal life. The letters are presented chronologically and as close to the originals as the printer medium permits. Each letter is, of course, fully annotated, and an introduction and meticulous notes provide all the necessary information on the historical and cultural issues of the time.show more

About Henry Handel Richardson

Professor Clive Probyn and Associate Professor Bruce Steele are both from the English Department at Monash University, where they have set up the Henry Handel Richardson Project, the largest ever undertaken on an Australian author. It currently involves five simultaneous elements: the correspondence; new editions of the novels Maurice Guest and The Getting of Wisdom; an edition of the short stories; and a performance edition of 66 unpublished songs by HHR, which are also illuminated by the letters.show more
