Works about this Work

Australian Literature and the Making of History Paul Sharrad , 2006 single work criticism
— Appears in: Lemuria , Winter vol. 1 no. 1 2006; (p. 55-74)
Sharrad in this essay discusses a wide range of Australian fiction with attention to its negotiations with history. Sharrad says that the struggle of the writers he examines 'has been both to recover and reject history' (72-73). Through fiction, history is brought to life but 'lest we become trapped by the tyranny of the past, the writer has also to perform literary exorcisms that will free the future from the hauntings which currently still visit the Australian national present' (73).
Ambiguity and Indigeneity in Hasluck's The Country Without Music Srilata Ravi , 2005 single work criticism
— Appears in: Diaspora : The Australasian Experience 2005; (p. 205-212)
The Visionary Symphony in Hasluck's The Country Without Music K. Reghunadhan Pillai , 2005 single work criticism
— Appears in: Diaspora : The Australasian Experience 2005; (p. 249-254)
Pillai argues that only creole music provides a sanctuary against the 'cycle of violence and protest and struggle for human rights' in the novel examined.
Being Somewhere Else: Diaspora as a Form of Alibi Nicholas Hasluck , 2005 single work essay
— Appears in: Diaspora : The Australasian Experience 2005; (p. 403-409)
In this essay Hasluck comments on 'diaspora' and describes some of the ruminations that led to the creation of his novel, The Country Without Music. He ties the Borgesian preoccupation with illusion and reality to the notion (in law) of the alibi and then links both to the concept of diaspora. Hasluck discusses how fictive alternatives (what if the French had colonised Australia?) and alternative communities form some of the themes that animate his novel.
