The Angry Eye is a book by Max Harris published by Pergamon Press in 1973. Max Harris' articulate anger and probing eye has made him Australia's outstanding, if not only, literary journalist and in the process he has lifted what could have been off-hand jottings to the level of idiomatic Australian literature. The three sections of his book: Australia- Gestures of National Disenchantment and On Being Thrown to the Literary Lions, which bring together essays written in the last decade, are brilliantly successful probings into intellectual action, or retardation, in a no longer colonial Australia. Essentially this is a permanent record of, in Max Harris' words, an 'Australian cultural revolution of extraordinary dimensions'. His writings are an 'act of cultural diagnosis a diagnosis which Australians today can only disregard at their peril. As he writes 'for unless we constantly make judgments on the society we have, we won't have a society worth having'. No attempt can or ought to be made to convey on a dustjacket's ephemeral blurb the variety of subjects he covers and the verbal virtuosity he brings to bear on them. The only person who can speak for May Harris is Max Harris himself. First Edition. Condition: Good. Dust jacket: Good- protected in clear plastic sleeve. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting.
