AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'An Imaginative Life: An Interview with David Malouf' presents a wide-ranging discussion of a number of Malouf's major works. Commencing with a consideration of Malouf's personal and artistic beginnings, the interview explores his own sense of his position as an Australian (and a regional Australian) writer, the thematic and stylistic development of his craft as a writer of prose, the development of his distinctive novelistic voice, the place of mythology and historical memory in his fiction, his sense of the relationship between landscape and language and the complex constitution of the character of the Australian settler located as it is between a residual fidelity to the Old World and its presence in a new and other place.
