Written by a teenager living in the Australian bush in the 1890s and originally published in 1901, Miles Franklin's My Brilliant Career is a candid representation of the aspirations and frustrations of a young woman constrained by middle-class social arrangements, especially the pressure to marry. My Brilliant Career has continued to delight readers and to cause them to locate their personal realities in the struggle of Franklin's heroine, Sybylla Melvyn, to recognize and to pursue what she most wants and needs in her life. In addition to the rich selection of appendices, this edition includes maps of early twentieth-century Australia and a critical introduction that outlines political and economic developments relevant to the novel, traces the literary landscape upon which My Brilliant Career first appeared, and describes the reception and interpretation given the novel in the century after its initial publication (including the celebrated 1979 film adaptation).

About the Author:

Bruce K. Martin is Professor Emeritus of English at Drake University, Des Moines, Iowa.

From AudioFile:

MY BRILLIANT CAREER, Miles Franklin's thinly veiled autobiographical novel, is often considered to be the Australian counterpoint to JANE EYRE. The feminist novel stands on its own, however, and is the powerful story of Sybylla, a young girl thirsting for life, love, and happiness in the Australian outback. Originally published in 1901, MY BRILLIANT CAREER engendered so much controversy that Franklin, who died in 1954, insisted that it not be published again until ten years after her death. Building upon Franklin's highly charged material, narrator Megan Rees reads with passion and purpose, heightening the intensity of Sybylla's emotions. Rees's delivery is flawless, and the book so captivating and enjoyable that it's hard to believe it was written more than a century ago. D.J.S. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine
