19th Century New Zealand Novels, a digital collection from the New Zealand Electronic Text Centre.
The novels of nineteenth century New Zealand are part of an under-read and undervalued period in New Zealand cultural history. Although the term "Maoriland" may evoke a world of saccharine fantasy in which Maori warriors in heroic attitudes and Maori maidens in seductive ones inhabited outmoded Victorian literary forms, recent critics have argued that there was a lively and significant colonial literature, full of complexities, contradictions, evasions and the beginnings of a self-consciously New Zealand literature.
