'In this article I examine one of the early works by Australian Aboriginal writer Kim Scott, True Country. Drawing on studies of "point of view" and "modality", the present work tries to capture the troubled identities of Aboriginal communities in Australia and the process of growth and consciousness undergone by the protagonist. The article also highlights how fictional characters can be shaped and presented through their words and thoughts, thus involving the reader in a dialogistic relationship with the topic treated. Hence, the narrative structure is characterized by continuous shifts of perspective.' -- Author's abstract p. 66.
