Works about this Work

The (Im)possibility of Objectivity : Narrating the Past in Young Adult Historiographic Metafiction Amy Cross , single work criticism
— Appears in: The ALAN Review , vol. 42 no. 3 (p. 12-21)

In this article Amy Cross draws upon two Australian historiographic metafictive texts, Into White Silence and The Lace Maker's Daughter, to demonstrate how particular narrative strategies destablise the relationship between history and fiction and the past and the present, and can invite readers to consider their own roles as meaning makers - of history and of their individual selves.

y Engaging With Liminal Spaces : Historiographic Metafiction in Young Adult Literature Amy Cross , Sydney : 2009 Z1774173 2009 single work thesis The study takes as its focus four recent young adult texts that incorporate the mode of historiographic metafiction both implicitly and explicitly through a variety of narrative strategies. The historiographic metafictive texts selected for this study problematise history and fiction in a range of ways. The mode functions as a device for examining the ideologies and tropes of young adult fiction, and specifically the discursive representation of history within this genre. Further, it allows an exploration of the fluidity of meaning by incorporating and problematising discourses of history and fiction, truth and reality, adolescence and adulthood. The analysis demonstrates that historiographic metafiction in young adult literature both strengthens and destabilises tenets of humanism, which results in an emphasis on liminal spaces.
