9789980945754: Unfolding Petals: Readings in Modern Papua New Guinean Literature

This anthology brings together essays of previously published and unpublished materials on modern Papua New Guinean literature. Modern, in the sense that Papua New Guineans have always had oral literature. The fact that no other collection of such material exists up to now is itself indicative not only of the need for such anthologies but also of the state of criticism of modern Papua New Guinean literature. As that literature becomes more and more an object of serious and systematic study, the need for critical material and for greater accessibility of such material as exists, is being sharply felt.
