Janet Frame

Short Fiction
Edited by Marta Dvorak and Christine Lorre

The Lagoon and Other Stories (1951), a first collection of stories that focuses on childhood, arguably anticipates all the subsequent themes and techniques of Janet Frame’s later fiction – and this is what the twelve essays in this issue suggest, by revealing the ramifications of the stories of The Lagoon in Frame’s later, longer fiction. The four parts that structure the issue further emphasize key aspects of her writing: “The subject of words” focuses on the modernist attention paid to words, “External landscapes and geographies of the mind” on the positioning of the writer, “The ‘watching self’” on self-reflexivity, and “(Inter/meta)textuality and the ontology of authorship” on storytelling techniques.
