Students study Australian literature in the genres of poetry, fiction (short story and novel), and drama. Though the focus is on individual texts rather than critical writings, the unit introduces students to critical literacy, and students are expected to demonstrate a capacity to argue effectively by incorporating critical writings in their essays. The unit enables students to place Australian literature within a wider cultural context. It discusses literature`s construction of male and female `types` and, on a broader level, the reaction to colonialist attitudes and turn-of-the-century nationalism.
