|Title:||Writing Set in Tenterfield - and other Literary References||Contributor(s):||Ryan, John Sprott (author)||Publication Date:||2002||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/1526||Abstract:||One of the most potent ways of recalling earlier episodes from one's own early life and formative experiences, or, of more general past experiences in a particular place, is to read either surviving personal papers from that period, and the relevant local newspapers, or - and this is often more pleasurable - peruse a range published materials, particularly fiction or biography, concerned with that setting. They may be official papers, guidebooks, or, in many cases literary writing that has such a localised focus. in the case of Tenterfield and district, a little searching will reveal a surprisingly rich range of texts that have a firm setting in Tenterfield, with varying degrees of the historical, the social, the fictional, and the personal in their appeal. In the following survey a somewhat random collection of such sources has been scrutinised - in some sort of chronological order - for their tone and interesting facts or more subjective concepts that they may be held to contain for the curious seeker after such personal or other cultural memories and associations - from other people's Tenterfield.||Publication Type:||Book Chapter||Source of Publication:||Writing Tenterfield: A Collection of Historical, Cultural and Other Essays, p. 111-126||Publisher:||University of New England and the Tenterfield Shire Council||Place of Publication:||Armidale, Australia||ISBN:||186389795X||Field of Research (FOR):||210303 Australian History (excl Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander History)||HERDC Category Description:||B1 Chapter in a Scholarly Book||Other Links:||http://trove.nla.gov.au/work/30416709||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 196
