AbstractHistoryArchive Description

In this essay Kinsella reads Hope's poem 'within and against the uncanny' (186). Set against a Western Australian landscape and history, the poem is interpreted as being not only about the bird, but also about the fear of loss of home, movement, and a compulsion to persist.
