AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This article surveys the reception of a German translation (by Thomas Eichhorn, 2004) of Murray's Fredy Neptune in German-speaking countries. It looks at responses to the verse novel and its author in German-language reviews and articles, and compares them with the Australian reception. Taking into consideration the significance of the 'German connection', the second part of the article examines the response to Murray's presentation of 20th century history, particularly regarding German involvement in it, and the politics and ethics of remembering in Germany and Australia.
