Summary
  • "The Life of Patrick White marks 100 years since the birth of Australia’s only Nobel Laureate in Literature. This National Library of Australia exhibition looks at White’s life through the places he lived. It is drawn mostly from the Library’s vast collection of his papers – despite the fact that White repeatedly maintained he had destroyed them. In a reply to the Director-General of the National Library in 1977 about the acquisition of his papers, White wrote: ‘I can’t let you have my ‘papers’ because I don’t keep any. My mss are destroyed as soon as the books are printed. I put very little into notebooks, don’t keep friends’ letters as I urge them not to keep mine, and anything unfinished when I die is to be burnt.’ In 2006, White’s literary agent Barbara Mobbs offered the NLA a rich collection of his papers, from letters to notebooks to photos – many of which are featured in the exhibition."--About.
