AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Taylor examines Meston's journalism and concludes that 'Beyond its complex construction of Aboriginality, Meston's writing for the press comprised many rich cultural layers, including the constitution of the author's persona, his masculinist assumptions, his promotion of Queensland, the paradox of his natural history and shooting articles, his deployment of sources, and the generic dissemination of his views through rhetoric, poetry and fiction. Deeper penetration of these layers might enhance understanding of the discursive operations of power in Australia during a crucial development phase' (p. 131).
