Words and Silk : Gerald Murnane at the Cinema, Stefan Soloman , single work criticism
'Adrian Martin, one of Australia’s eminent voices in film criticism, once asserted that Philip Tyndall’s Words and Silk was "one of my all-time favourite Australian films." However, this hybrid documentary, focusing on the writer Gerald Murnane, has seen very little attention since its release in 1989, and that in spite of a recent spate of interest in Murnane’s work. As a writer of "true fiction," Murnane has been motivated from the start of his career by a "succession of images," and indeed, many of his novels owe a certain debt to motion pictures. In this essay, I discuss the relation of cinema to Murnane’s writing, considering how Tyndall’s film might serve as a useful means for interpreting Murnane’s oeuvre, and how it might be evaluated as a work of cinematic art in its own right..

Going into Dreamland : From Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland to Patrick White’s The Aunt’s Story, John Beston , single work criticism
'My chief purpose in this essay is to discuss influences that helped shape Patrick White's thought as he wrote the most individual of his novels, The Aunt's Story (1948). I also seek to place The Aunt's Story in historical context in its theme of the exploration of the psyche through the analysis of dreaming. That important theme was propelled into late nineteenth- early twentieth-century literature by Lewis Carrol's two stories, Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and Through the Looking -Glass (1871)...(343)
