Main Description
First published in New Zealand in 1992, and subsequently by George Braziller, New York, I Have What I Gave offers insight into Janet Frame's fiction. Janet Frame found the first edition to be "the result of extensive reading and scholarship...I thank Judith Dell Panny for noting that, far from being a random explosion or outburst, my books are the results of 'patterning and purpose" (Michael King, Wrestling with the Angel)."The new edition recentres and reorganises the previous material in a way that makes it even clearer and most enjoyable to read. Though familiar with the whole corpus of Frame's criticism and well-versed in recent literary theories, Dell Panny carefully eschews critical jargon. A most valuable tool to specialist, I Have What I Gave will also prove an illuminating guide to all those trying to find their way through the complexity of Janet Frame's fiction."Professor Jeanne Delbaere
