DESCRIPTION:
Helen Garner, David Malouf, Tim Winton, Judith Wright, Patrick White, Oodgeroo Noonuccal (Kath Walker) and Les Murray - why have some of our greatest writers also been leading political activists? Judith Wright fought to save the Great Barrier Reef and campaigned for a Treaty with Aboriginal Australians. Patrick White led anti-nuclear peace marches and boycotted the Bicentenary. Helen Garner and Les Murray took a stand against political correctness. What drives our most outstanding literary figures to become activists and public intellectuals? How have their public interventions provoked us, and how have we responded? Can writers really change the world? Literary Activists examines these questions through the lives and actions of some of Australia's foremost writers. It offers fresh insights into the activism, public-intellectual careers and writings of Judith Wright, Patrick White, Oodgeroo of the tribe Noonuccal, Les Murray, Helen Garner, David Malouf and Tim Winton. It also explores the intimate connection between writers and activism and asks what this reveals about the future of Australian literature.
