Many Spaces and Many Worlds : The Quest for a Place which is Home in David Malouf's Fly Away Peter, Elisa Armellino , single work criticism
'Choosing a perspective from which to study David Malouf's very successful novel Fly Away Peter (1982) is certainly a challenging task, since the plot is a rich texture of many multifaceted themes and sub-themes. Europe and Australia, which provide the setting of the book are linked indifferent sways with almost all aspects of the novel. Whether it is considered a blidungsroman which presents the main characters' difficult journey towards adulthood or as a painful description of the horrors of World War I, the novel offers interesting and unusual perspectives from which to interpret the relationship between Australia and Europe. Indeed these two geographical and cultural dimensions are linked with one of the main motifs in the text, that is, with the characters' sense of dislocation and with their search for a sense of belonging. This article aims at exploring the ways in which , through this search, the borders between places slowly fade away n the story and a new notion of 'home' is built against the irremediable losses and divisions of the present...'(p. 239)

Teenage Wasteland : Adolescents and Adolescence in M. J. Hyland's Novels, David Clark Mitchell , single work criticism
'This paper studies the presentation of adolescence in the two novels written my M.J. Hyland, How the Light Gets In (2003) and Carry Me Down (2006). After commenting on the trans-national basis of much contemporary fiction, and Hyland's relationship to both an Australian and an Irish literary system, we discuss the concept of 'grace' as a term for defining a certain set of perceived human qualities, and how the rupture between adolescent and adult society can be seen as the apparent result of mutually confused interpretations of such qualities. Both novels are examined through the relationship between the adolescent protagonists and the various social levels on which they are seen in the works.' (p. 275)

'‘Australia and Galicia: Defeating the Tyranny of Distance’ aims to fill a niche in scholarship of Australian and Galician relations. It includes contributions from authors from both antipodes, focusing on a variety of themes, in order to demonstrate their common past, present and future. The prologue, by Secretary of Immigration Manuel Luiz Rodriguez Gonzalez highlights a primary goal of the book, to inspire further conversation and knowledge. The historical and contemporary perspectives attempt to highlight the extensive relationship between Galicia and Australia, to demonstrate that despite great distances and differences, collaboration between cultures is possible. Together with the literary views, they highlight common experiences, values and characters, despite their contradictory and shifting identities and contexts.' (Introduction)
