Letters between Vance and Nettie Palmer 1909-1959: The Complete Correspondence. (2005–2007)

The project will prepare for publication the complete extant correspondence (1909-1959) almost entirely unpublished between Vance Palmer and Nettie Palmer Australia s most significant literary couple. An innovative editorial methodology will be applied that crosses boundaries between auto/biography private/public voices and epistolary narrative and addresses in particular issues of gender and cultural production. The proposed two volumes of letters will include extensive critical commentary and be framed by both the preoccupations of the two correspondents and the historical social and cultural contexts. The letters will have great value for scholars and also much interest for the wider reading public
