AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'During the winter of 1922, the Exploration Vessel Raven became trapped in the Antarctic icepack, entombing 28 men aboard it through the dark, polar night. Into White Silence tells their story - a story of a lost past, of a tragic future, of ice, ambition and madness. It captures the terrible, fascinating beauty of Antarctica, both as it was then and is today, and is a journey into the mind of every person who has ever set foot upon those ice-bound shores.' (From the publisher's website.)

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.

'This practice-led research paper considers, from a writer's point of view, the linked notions of masking and unmasking as they apply to creative practice in the field of writing fiction. It examines these notions within the framework of existing theory relating to the construction of 'Children's' and 'young adult' literature' drawn from scholars including Nodelman, Hunt, Rose and Immel. Taking as a starting point the question of whether 'unmasking' in fiction is truly possible, the paper considers both the creative process behind and critical reaction to, the author's 2008 young adult novel Into White Silence, and measures both process and response against the impact of masking and unmasking in the making of that particular work.'

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.

Wheat writes eloquently about how 'Antarctica is part of our story' and the fact that Eaton 'succeeds in explaining why it haunts us' in his review of the book. He summarises that 'there is real terror in this story - madness, mutiny, sudden violence, fierce storms, starvation and slow freezing'.
