Jennifer Rutherford and Barbara Holloway


Halfway House is a collection of original, scholarly and inventive essays and images. It brings together writers who are both noted and new voices in contemporary discussions of Australian engagement with place.

Rather than attempting to impose a uniform concept of Australian poetics, the contributors to Halfway House have investigated revealing situations, occasions and technology.

Using poetics in many senses, Halfway House is an exciting, original and provocative contribution to how Australians use, confront or avoid the place we live, its history, its environment and culture.
