Re-Construction of Self through Cultural HistorySubhash Verma,
2011single work criticism — Appears in:
42011;(p. 113-123)'The Aboriginal literature in English, by the indigenous Australian writers restores the dignity and humanity of the Aboriginal people. Aboriginal writing is full of resistance against the misrepresentation of the Aboriginal experiences and it is concerned with reconstructing not only Aboriginal identity but also the truth about their life. Drama is one of the most important tools in the hands of the Aboriginal writers to represent history and Aboriginality.' (113)
