AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Delys Bird discusses issues of essentialism and authenticity as applied to Aboriginal writing. She looks at examples of non-Aboriginal editing or framing of Aboriginal texts before moving to an extended reading of Benang and how the novel negotiates between - and complicates - ideas of orality and writing and Indigenous and non-Indigenous representation and identity.
