Pacific Islands Creative Writing. A Select, Annotated Guide for Students, Librarians, and the General Reader.
Stenderup, Vibeke
This annotated bibliography provides information about critical articles and creative writing by and about Pacific Islanders available in European libraries. Although western writers often use the South Pacific as an exotic background for their narratives, they generally portray Polynesians as terrifying cannibals or gentle primitives. The aim of this bibliography is to encourage study of the emerging South Pacific literature. The literature covered is in English, by writers in the region of the University of the South Pacific. The bibliography is divided into five sections which cover different types of publications: (1) Journals; (2) Research Aides and General Criticism; (3) Bibliographies; (4) Anthologies; (5) Creative Writing and Criticism (organized by country-- Cook Islands, Fiji and Rotuma, Kiribati, Nieu, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Vanuatu, and Western Samoa). A special section provides sources relating to the Samoan writer, Albert Wendt, and an addendum lists references to and about crative writing in Papua New Guinea. Author and title indices are included. (KH)
