Works about this Work

Four Perspectives on Race and Racism in Australian Poetry A.J. Carruthers , Lia Incognita , Samuel Wagan Watson , Elena Gomez , 2016 single work essay
— Appears in: Overland , Autumn no. 222 2016; (p. 83-91)
'The article offers the authors' insight on the manifestation of race and racism in Australian poetry. Topics discussed include the reflection of racism and orientalism in conventional verse culture (CVC), the posted justification of the racist depictions of Black women in the book "Gone With the Wind" by poet Vanessa Place, and the suspected association of racism with mental illness.' (Publication abstract)
“Dreaming of the Empire of Nostalgia” : John Mateer’s Southern Barbarians Andreia Sarabando , 2012 single work criticism
— Appears in: Journal of the European Association of Studies on Australia, , vol. 3 no. 2 2012; (p. 20-31)
'This article deals with the politics of observing and commenting on "elsewhere" in John Mateer's "Portuguese collection" of poetry, Southern Barbarians (2011), with particular recourse to Marc Augé's anthropological theories of places and non-places. It also attempts to establish connections between Mateer's perceptions of Portugal and questions related to a Portuguese national identity as formulated by contemporary cultural commentators (Eduardo Lourenço, José Gil, Boaventura de Sousa Santos). In doing so, an exploration of the relationship between Portugal and Australia becomes inevitable.' (Author's abstract)

y separately published work icon Literary Migrations : White, English-Speaking Migrant Writers in Australia Ingeborg van Teeseling , Wollongong : 2011 Z1860612 2011 single work thesis 'In this thesis, I am arguing that [a] false core/periphery binary has made a particular group of migrants ,-those who are white and have migrated from English-speaking countries - invisible - invisible as migrants, that is. For the writers within this group, this leads to a critical blindness in relation to their work and place within Australian national literature. As a critic, however, I look at the work of Ruth Park, Alex Miller and John Mateer and see it is profoundly influenced by their migrant experience. More often than not they write about themes that are typical of migrant writing: alienation, identity, belonging, home, being in-between cultures, history. For a more appropriate, complete appreciation of their work, this thesis argues that it is imperative to go back to the beginning and return the 'default setting' of migrant to its literal meaning.'
