Summary
While not taking sides in the debate over whether the work of expatriated writers suffers or gains due to their self-exile, or taking the postmodern view that the concept of "home" is a fiction, Bennett (d. 2012; emeritus, U. of New South Wales) and Pender (English and theatre studies, U. of New England) acknowledge the political context of expatriation to a former colonial power in discussing influences on Australian authors living in Britain over the past two centuries. Authors discussed range from early expatriates W.C. Wentworth, John Lang, Rosa Praed, and Gilbert Murray to the current "ex" generation including Nikki Gemmell , Meaghan Delahunt, and M.J. Hyland.
