'David Malouf 's An Imaginary Life has been praised for its anti-colonial and ethical treat - ment of alterity. However, this paper argues that Ovid appropriates the Child's mysticism as a tool to soothe his pain of unbelonging. In this sense, the novel brings to mind the current debates about the Australian project of reconciliation and the white settlers' opportunist engagement with Aboriginal mysticism and spirituality.'
