Australian Literature

Australian literature began with the tradition of English literature but then expanded to explore Australian themes such as Aboriginality, mateship, democracy, national identity, migration, its unique geography, urban living and life in the bush. Notable Australian writers include novelists, poets and playwrights, many of whom have gained international renown. Themes include local and world history, childrens’ works and satire, often linking prose with the visual arts.
