AbstractHistoryArchive Description

[Threadgold] examines "the influence of poststructuralism and feminism on poetics, the study of ready-made forms. She argues that these movements have changed poetics into a study of the "making" (poiesis) or "performing" of textual forms. Threadgold uses the ... "Governor murders" of 1900 as a case study and looks at an extensive group of texts ... from a wide range of different genres and social spheres ... telling or reacting to the story of these murders." The last two chapters in particular are of literary interest in their discussion of works by Keneally, Mudrooroo and Frank Clune. (Back cover)
