Art & Life contains extracts from diaries, letters, essays, travelogues and poetry written by Elizabeth Durack (1915..2́000) over the course of seven decades. With wit and candour, the writing reveals some of the most important influences and episodes – and the paradox – of her life. Durack read and travelled widely and drew inspiration from many sources: from the men and women she knew; from classical Western and ancient Aboriginal traditions; and from contemporary politics.
