AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The death of his brother is a catalyst for the author to look at the meaning of death, of mourning, of poetry and of friendship.


  • Author's note: This paper was presented at the Association of Studies in Australian Literature 2004 Conference. I would like to sincerely thank Professor Elizabeth Webby for presenting the paper for me in my absence. It is dedicated to her with warmth and friendship. A number of the ideas presented here were adapted from my reading and misreading of Maurice Blanchot's and Jean-Luc Nancy's work.
