Works about this Work

Where To? : An Indian Perspective on Australian Aboriginal Poetry in English Angshuman Kar , 2014 single work criticism
— Appears in: Antipodes , December vol. 28 no. 2 2014; (p. 367-378)
'Kar examines from an Indian perspective the issues of inseparable engagement of the Australian Aboriginal poets with the trope of the "other". The Australian Aboriginal poets' engagement with the trope of the "other" is not surprising at all if one keeps in mind the history of colonization in Australia, the highly racialized policy of assimilation. He implies not one but three points of view. These are the point of view of a teacher who teaches Australian Aboriginal poetry to Indian students, the point of view that the subject position of an educated, privileged, upper-caste Indian (who is not a participant in but an observer of what has been happening in Australia for the past few years or so) creates, and, finally, the point of view that an Indian academic, of late, has offered on issues relating to identity and violence.'
