Works about this Work

Australian Literature a Perspective of the Ecology of Literature Diao Keli , 2015 single work criticism
— Appears in: Australian Studies – Proceedings of the 14th International Conference of Australian Studies in China 2015; (p. 79-85)
'As a definition, the ecology of the literature is a study of the making and being of literature, it refers to not only the outside environment of literature, including the social, cultural and historical context, but also the constituent elements of literature, such as the writer, the text, the translator and the reader. It emphasizes the interplay of these elements that make literature come into being, as well as the developing rules of literature itself. Australian literature serves well as a case study of the ecology of literature. The making of Australian literature is the construction of constant opening and expansive nationalism. The making of the Australian writer is a process of tracing a tie with the past, establish an identity, and utter a voice of his own, and find a location in a new territory and world.' (79)
