Notes

  • Dedication: For Clifford, Geoffrey, and Cressida.
  • Epigraph: I am forever blessed!/For I am his own breath, within his flute!/And if that breath is used up, in one song,/I shall not mourn./The joy of all the worlds is in his flute,/and I his breath!/Let my song be good or evil,/let it be played with joy or sorrow,/I will sound it in the morning,/and in the evening it will sound,/and I will play it, softly muffled, in the night./I will play it in the spring,/I will play it in the fall,/and when his breath is used up, in his song,/I shall not mourn./My song will be the loveliest of songs.
  • Other formats: Also braille, sound recording.

'Rainforests evoke vivid imagery; the profusion of intertwined trees and undergrowth both invites and confounds exploration. Acclaimed writer Janette Turner Hospital conjures up a rainforest for readers by weaving threads of connection and meaning into a labyrinth of characters and plot lines. From The Ivory Swing to Orpheus Lost, Hospital's award-winning novels and short stories have challenged and intrigued readers for over twenty-five years. Hospital's books tackle complex themes of dislocation, identity, ethics and the nature of reality, wrapping around a reader like rainforest creepers, remaining attached long after the last page is turned.

In this groundbreaking work of literary criticism, David Callahan signposts and analyses the major themes scattered throughout Janette Turner Hospital's writing. Rainforest Narratives is the perfect companion to her fiction for readers and scholars alike.' -- Publisher description.
