Voices Nearby is a timely contribution to the literature resources available to high school students. A wide range of contemporary material written from a number of perspectives is organised into eight thematically-based chapters, all highlighting the richness and diversity of the writing from cultures nearby. Throughout the anthology the growing importance of Australia's links to, and relationship with, the countries of the Asia-Pacific region is given appropriate emphasis. Key features: a collection drawn from novels, plays, autobiographies, short stories, poetry collections and interviews, material originally written in English and in translation, some poetry presented in both its original and translated forms, careful positioning of the anthologised material so that similarities and contrasts (of the writing mode and/or experience) can be considered, questions and workshop activities that require students to write, discuss, listen, read and view, Text Guide boxes that explain and encourage the use of a range of written and spoken forms, chapter introductions introduce the theme, authors and range of text types, glossary, biographical notes on the authors, annotated further reading, viewing and listening lists. This 1997 Rigby Heinemann Paperback is in very good condition.
