Abstract

Antarctica is the subject of hundreds of novels, varying from ‘literary’ pieces by acclaimed writers through to those that are unabashedly commercial. This presentation offers a new perspective on our relationship with the far south and gives a small taste of the richness and diversity of Antarctic fiction.
