AbstractHistoryArchive Description

The essay investigates two of Malouf's novels with regard to the self-other relation: between characters in the story and between the text and the world of the reader. It focuses on three distinct self-other relations: 'the animal and the human (drawing on recent work in ethics by Giorgio Agamben); the relation between two humans as an I and a You (drawing on the theology of Martin Buber); and the human and divinity (drawing on the ethical phenomenology of Emmanuel Levinas)' (76).
