Works about this Work

The Shadow on the Field : Literature and Ecology in the Western Australian Wheatbelt Tony Hughes-d'Aeth , 2007 single work criticism
— Appears in: The Littoral Zone : Australian Contexts and Their Writers 2007; (p. 45-69)
Satellite images show a sharp line marking the end (or beginning) of the country cleared for farming in south-western Australia. It is the most visible clearance line on the planet and demarcates an area the size of Scotland from which, in the space of two generations, the native vegetation was almost entirely stripped. This chapter attempts to trace this far-reaching ecological event in the creative literatures of those generations, focussing on the inter-war years. (abstract taken from The Littoral Zone)
