Dorothy Hewett

Nicole Moore

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


Born in Perth in 1923, Dorothy Hewett had become one of Australia's best-loved and most respected writers by the time she died in 2002. Distinguished as a playwright, poet, and novelist, she was awarded the Order of Australia for services to literature and a life-time Emeritus Fellowship from the Literature Board of the Australia Council. The rich legacy of her work, across many genres and in response to much social change and reinvention, remains a source of ongoing critical debate, as well as fierce and abiding loyalty from readers and audiences.
