Works about this Work

Mozart in the Antipodes Adi Wimmer , 2009 single work criticism
— Appears in: Mozart in Anglophone Cultures 2009; (p. 71-79)

'The purpose of this paper is not to discuss how Mozart is treated by the classical music industry and music aficionados of 'down under'. I lack the insight into these sections of Australian culture, and in any case my guess is that Mozart plays the same role in Sydney as in Vienna, New York or London. My aim is to engage with relevant literary responses to Mozart, mostly poetic ones, over a period of slightly more than a century - but that is half the white-settler history of Australia.' (p. 71)

Italy and the Transformation of the Traveller in Robert Dessaix's Night Letters Roberta Trape , 2009 single work criticism
— Appears in: Imagined Australia : Reflections around the Reciprocal Construction of Identity between Australia and Europe 2009; (p. 215-231)
This article focuses on 'the representation of Italy in Robert Dessaix's Night Letters (1996.)Trape states that the novel 'adds to a considerable corpus of texts by Australian writers, which are based on their travel experiences' and that Night Letters presents a process of self-knowledge and self-discovery, which unfolds through the discovery of the country.'
