Australian Literary and Historical Texts

This collection of Australian fiction, poetry, plays and non-fictional works, which has been put together from a number of different sources, now consists of over 150 texts, ranging from a seventeenth-century Portuguese account of the discovery of Australia to the novels which make up Henry Handel Richardson's trilogy The Fortunes of Richard Mahony, first published in the 1910s and 1920s. [...] Among the non-fictional works are both of Watkin Tench's wonderful accounts of the first years of English settlement at Sydney, the record of the debates at the 1890 Australasian Federation Conference, Raffaello Carboni's highly entertaining contemporary account of the Eureka Stockade, Frederick Sinnett's The Fiction Fields of Australia", the first major critical piece on Australian novels, and Philip E. Muskett's classic The Art of Living in Australia. [...] The texts are keyed to a very high level of accuracy and encoded in accordance with the Guidelines established for the markup of humanities source texts by the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI). [...] In addition to preparing editions for student and research use SETIS presents the texts in a searchable form and attempts to maximise the functionality available to the user."
