Works about this Work

The Sheep’s Face : Figuration, Empathy, Ethics Michael Farrell , 2016 single work criticism
— Appears in: JASAL , vol. 16 no. 1 2016;
'The word ‘species’ is etymologically related to looking. Although its primary biological definition is that of beings that can interbreed,species can refer to things of like kind: thisrelates to the term’s Latin derivation, specere, meaning to look. Describing how things look and conveying this appearance to others (whether in writing, or in relaying a memory) typically involves the use of metaphor. This article reads a number of Australian texts in terms of interspecies relations between humans and sheep, and considers the use of metaphor—and metonymy—and the place of ethics in this relation, with a particular emphasis on the face of both human and sheep: how sheep and humans look, in both senses of the word.' (Author's introduction)
Fear and Loathing in the Australian Bush : Gothic Landscapes in Bush Studies and Picnic at Hanging Rock Kathleen Steele , 2010 single work criticism
— Appears in: Colloquy : Text Theory Critique , December no. 20 2010;
This work is an 'analysis of two texts in which the representations of landscape have been overlooked in favour of feminist or classical readings: Barbara Baynton‟s Bush Studies and Joan Lindsay‟s Picnic at Hanging Rock. If "landscape'. (Author's introduction)

— Appears in: Southerly , vol. 68 no. 2 2008; (p. 144-152)

Inside the Deserted Hut : The Representation of Motherhood in Bush Mythology Sue Rowley , 1989 single work criticism
— Appears in: Westerly , December vol. 34 no. 4 1989; (p. 76-95)
Rowley argues that the idea of motherhood expressed in the texts of bush mythology is ambivalent and unresolved. The presentation of domestic space has a pronounced influence on the idea of motherhood constructed in the stories under discussion. But, the representation of motherhood in bush mythology has been excluded "from the myths by which Australians have sought to construct an identity".
