Edited By Clive Probyn and Bruce Steele

Professor Clive Probyn and Associate Professor Bruce Steele are both from the English Department at Monash University, where they have set up the Henry Handel Richardson Project, the largest ever undertaken on an Australian author. It currently involves five simultaneous elements: the correspondence; new editions of the novels Maurice Guest and The Getting of Wisdom; an edition of the short stories; and a performance edition of 66 unpublished songs by HHR, which are also illuminated by the letters.
