Australian Literature 101: Henry Handel Richardson: The Getting of Wisdom

Listen to Australian Literature 101: Henry Handel Richardson: The Getting of Wisdom

Who tells the story of a country? What story does a country’s national literature tell about its people and its identity? Is there such a thing as Australian literature at all? In this major new weekly series hosted by Ramona Koval, running in parallel with the university calendar, contemporary writers speak on seminal Australian texts, giving context, sharing their responses and exploring each work’s status as a classic of Australian literature. This week, Rodney Hall joins Ramona to explore The Getting of Wisdom by Henry Handel Richardson.
