    y Politics, Power and Poetry : An Intercultural Perspective on Aboriginal Identity in Black Australian Poetry Eleonore Wildburger , Tubingen : Stauffenburg Verlag , 2003 Z1064142 2003 single work criticism

    Author's/publisher's abstract: 'This book investigates a wide range of representations of Australian Indigenous identity formations and elaborates an interculturally appropriate research model, viewed from an anti-colonial perspective. Attention is focussed on (anti-)colonial power strategies within these formation processes, as well as on the socio-political relevance of reception processes in reply to these representations. The concepts of "difference" as to their relevance within intercultural transformations are explored.

    In this context, the tensions between essentialist and non-essentialist perspectives on identity discourse are pointed out.

    The broad spectrum of Aboriginality is investigated within the discourse analysis of a selection of contemporary Black Australian poetry ... The syncretic reading method interrogates the reader's experience as effects rather than methodologically determined acts of reception. The analysis does not dismiss the relevance of literary aesthetics for text interpretations, yet it exemplifies that the assessment criteria need to be grounded in the Aboriginality of the poems. The quintessence of this book lies in the author's firm conviction that the anti-colonial perspective on Indigenous identity constructions is metonymic in its visions of universal mental constructs, while at the same time advancing the visions of contemporary Aboriginality.
