Works about this Work

Islands C. A. Cranston , 2007 single work criticism
— Appears in: The Littoral Zone : Australian Contexts and Their Writers 2007; (p. 219-260)
This chapter investigates the impact of literary tropes on island topography. The survey approach of island literature is abandoned in favour of ecocritical praxis, examining instead the literature of selected temperate islands (with populations varying from 2 to 20,000). Cattle farming, ideological disjunction, and mortality are explored in two settler autobiographies set in 'paradise' (Three Hummock Island); 'descent with modification' is traced in the text and the farming practices (sealing, Soldier Settlement pastoral, and salvage) in a work of fiction based in 'Eden' (King Island); and in the final work (indigenous autobiography and myth set on North Stradbroke Island), the politics of the 'land ethic' and land rights confront a sea country pastoral.
