Christina Stead: Satirist

£34.99

Product description

Limited print run; very few still available.

Christina Stead was an accomplished satirist, yet critics have largely chosen to ignore the satire in her fiction. In this work, Anne Pender reviews Stead's novels as inheritors of the tradition of satire that dates back to the Roman satires of Horace and Juvenal, arguing that Stead's distinctive satirical fiction presents a contemporary view of Stead's own historical period from 1930 until the cold war.

This book is in fine condition with its only blemish being a mild darkening of the bottom corner white binding.
