restricted access Kangaroos and Cockatoos: Gaelic Literature in the Nineteenth-Century Antipodes


Gaelic literature produced by emigrants in nineteenth-century Australia and New Zealand is to be found almost exclusively in the pages of Gaelic periodicals and in the Gaelic columns of newspapers published in Scotland, the Antipodes and Canada. This paper provides an overview of these publications, including the short-lived Tasmanian periodical, An Teachdaire Gaidhealach, and considers the literary output of some of their identifiable Antipodean contributors.
