AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'The aim of this article is to show how Aboriginal poets explore and picture the difficulties of being othered when being othered actually means being erased, dismissed, merchandised [...] Through a poetics and politics of relation and resistance, poets such as Lisa Bellear, Lionel Fogarty and Samuel Wagan Watson open new fields and ways of expression, bringing to the fore, through their art, the ethical values of their imaginaries' (Author's abstract).
