coo ee tales of australian life by australian ladies Reviews
The stories in this anthology are a wonderful example of the way the gothic infuses mainstream Australian literature. As well as the gothic classic "The Bunyip" by Rosa Praed, these stories evoke the gothic through uncanny photographs and portraits of (beautiful) dead women, eerie landscapes, overwrought and tragic romances and pure orphaned maidens beset by ills. Wonderful stuff. :)
An interesting mix of Australian short stories by women writers, written more than a century ago.
