AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'This paper discusses the decolonizing strategies in the novel of Doctor Wooreddy's Prescription for Enduring the Ending of the World by Australian writer Mudrooroo. Through strategies like marginalized subjectivity, imperialist culture and Aboriginal culture, appropriation and rewriting, Mudrooroo effectively reveals the hidden truth of history which has been othered in the context of colonial discourse. He uses the white form and Aboriginal content to combat against the oppression of the colonial culture and successfully reconstructs a new Aboriginal identity in the multicultural Australia.' (32)
