Ed. by Andreas Gaile.
Cross/cultures: readings in the post/colonial literatures in English series; 78
Admired by both literary critics and a worldwide reading public, Peter Carey is Australia's most widely recognized contemporary writer. This volume opens with an interview with Carey by editor Gaile (English, Johannes Gutenberg U., Mainz). Next, 20 critical essays by international academics examine Carey's fiction from a variety of scholarly perspectives. Some of the contributions address general themes (such as Carey's film adaptations and allusions to the Christian tradition) while others focus on individual works. The volume concludes with an extensive bibliography of Carey criticism.
