Ken Goodwin shows how the recurrent themes of the quest to recover the past, the ideas of the alien, the need to endure and the imminence of violence combine to produce  the unique qualities found in Australian literature.  The book surveys the works of early writers in the context of the first hundred years of civillisation and looks at the prominence of colonial values and the powerful influences of periodicals such as The Bulletin.

Considerable emphasis is given to the twentieth century, from the symbolist novels of Patrick White and expatriate work of Peter Porter to the absurdist novelists David Ireland and Peter Mathers.
