    'Halfway House is a collection of original, scholarly and inventive essays and images. It brings together writers who are both noted and new voices in contemporary discussions of Australian engagement with place. Rather than attempting to impose a uniform concept of Australian poetics, the contributors to Halfway House have investigated revealing situations, occasions and technology.

    Using poetics in many senses, Halfway House is an exciting, original and provocative contribution to how Australians use, confront or avoid the place we live, its history, its environment and culture.' (Publisher's blurb)

Works about this Work

Walking, Talking, Looking : The Calibre Essay and Remembering Persuasively in Australia Daniel Juckes , 2017 single work criticism
— Appears in: TEXT Special Issue Website Series , no. 39 2017;
'The Calibre Essay Prize has been awarded annually since 2007 by the Australian Book Review. In this paper I argue that a number of the Calibre essays represent a discontinuous, but vital, conversation concerning the interaction between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. I use the work of Ross Gibson to interpret some of the commended and winning essays. I suggest that the essay form is suited to negotiating difficulties that persist in contemporary Australia as a result of colonial incursion, and argue that the Calibre essays under examination offer possible mechanisms for reconciliation. The form and method of the essay, as well as the finished work itself, help writer and reader to engage with others, with silences, and with the past through concentration of focus, conversation and reciprocity, and the particular flâneur-like qualities of essay writing. I argue that the Calibre essays are examples of what Gibson calls persuasive remembering (2015b: 29).' (Introduction)
