Works about this Work

An Apocalyptic Map : New Worlds and the Colonization of Australia Roslyn Weaver , 2011 single work criticism
— Appears in: Apocalypse in Australian Fiction and Film : A Critical Study 2011; (p. 23-53)
'This chapter examines the map that preceded, and eventually superseded, the territory of Australia, in order to demonstrate that early maps of the south land established an apocalyptic tradition that still resonates in contemporary fictions. If one reinterprets Jean Baudrillard's comments in the context of colonization and Australia, it is possible to see how European imagination delineated an apocalyptic map of the country before explorers and settlers even arrived, a map that located Australia as a tabula rasa, a blank slate where heaven and hell might equally be feasible. This chapter surveys the dialectic emerging from these confliction visions.' (24)
Wet, in the Mindscape of the Dry: Water Tanks as Nature/Culture Signifiers C A Cranston , 2008 single work criticism
— Appears in: Words on Water: Literary and Cultural Representations 2008; (p. 23-38)
The author investigates the impact of Australian literature and European attitudes on water conservation in Australia.
Insert Setting N. A. Bourke , 2008 single work criticism
— Appears in: Perilous Adventures , vol. 08 no. 10 2008;
Setting is one of those all-too-common aspects of how-to-write books. It's right up there with character and dialogue in the list of things a dull-witted writer needs to be reminded to put in their book. To judge by many self-help writer's manuals, the secret to writing a good book is to generate a list of essential items, and tick them off as you go
