Works about this Work

Transculturalism and Hybridity in the French-Australian Writer Paul Wenz Maurice Blackman , 1997 single work criticism
— Appears in: Explorations : A Journal of French-Australian Connections , December no. 23 1997; (p. 3-12)

'Maurice Blackman considers the transcultural position displayed by Wenz in 'both the content and the écriture of his texts'. 'His point of view is not that of a Frenchman, specifically, but of someone who is simultaneously at home in the bush and yet "alien"'.

He concludes that 'Paul Wenz's narratives do not only thematize aspects of the experience of transculturality, but the processes of their écriture also have the effect of infusing, one into the other, two hegemonic literary discourses, as well as the two dominant "imperial" languages'.'
