Literary Criticism: How and Why?: Simon Leys

Simon Leys’ cultural and political commentary has spanned four decades, with no corner of the arts escaping his sharp eye and acerbic wit. Since moving to Australia in 1970 he has become one of the country’s most highly acclaimed writers, with books including The Hall of Uselessness, Other People’s Thoughts, The Death of Napoleon, and The Wreck of the Batavia & Prosper. In this special lecture for the Wheeler Centre, one of Australia’s most important writers and critics reflects on the how and why of literary criticism; in particular, where one may find truth, trust, knowledge and judgement in the relationship between readers, authors and critics. Presented by the Wheeler Centre, October 2011
