AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This correspondence takes the form of ten letters dated May 1980 to May 1983. Judith Wright questions the legitimacy of certain Aboriginal tribal customs which took place in Les Murray's The Boy Who Stole the Funeral. Les Murray replies to this letter and over the next three years the dialogue between the two writers expands into issues of Aboriginal land rights, Native Title, reconciliation, and the different state legislations covering the rights of Aboriginal people.
