AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Wilson examines Auster's poem, which he considered as a lucid example of the way in which the Aboriginal population was imagined by some nineteenth-century observers to be in a state of irreversible decline. Moreover, what this poem demonstrates most strongly is the correspondence that the discourse of Aboriginal extinction has with both the colonizing process in Tasmania and the representation of Aboriginality in Tasmanian literature.'
