Honourable Mention, Group/Collective Category, Centre for Australian Cultural Studies National Awards 1998 A good essay lures you past your prejudices, into the deep. You're on the writer's expedition into paradox, probing refractions and shadows, teasing out new understandings. Morag Fraser's selection of outstanding essays celebrates a literary form particularly suited to the Antipodean viewpoint, and illuminates the contours shaping public and private cultures. With wit and acumen, the writers essay into: leadership, splendour, social mobility, the poetry of chimps, dilettantes, a Chief Protector of Aboriginals, music, atavism, the Americanisation of the Phillipines, hybridity, Bloomsbury affectations, tolerance, dying in a foreign language...When you surface, the world's not quite the same - or is it you who has changed? Take the plunge!
