AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The article examines how Australian history and landscape are represented and interpreted in "The Proposition." The author argues that the movie is a product of its time and place as it tackles Australia's colonial past. He emphasizes that the role of the film is to produce an image of the country in which the land forges hardened characters. He stresses that the movie also intersects Australian history with other accounts of the place.' (Publication abstract)
