Summary
Shirley Hazzard's nonfiction works spanning from the 1960s to the 2000s contribute to a keener understanding of postwar letters, thought, and politics, supported by an introduction that situates Hazzard's writing within its historical context and emphasizes her influence on world literature. This collection confirms Hazzard's place within a network of writers, artists, and intellectuals who believe in the ongoing power of literature to console, inspire, and direct human life, despite—or maybe because of—the world's disheartening realities
