Works about this Work

Naming the Voids of Multiculturalism in "Biral Biral" : A New Reading of the Poetry of Lionel Fogarty Ali Alizadeh , 2013 single work criticism
— Appears in: Antipodes , December vol. 27 no. 2 2013; (p. 129-133)
'As one of Australia's most innovative, outspoken, and prolific Indigenous poets, Lionel Fogarty has been the subject of a great number of studies and analysis over the years, particularly since the publication of his New and Selected Poems: Munaldjali, Mutuerjaraera in 1995. Here, Alizadeh uses other radically different reading strategy to consider one of Fogarty's best-known poems, "Biral Biral." By drawing on the work of the contemporary philosopher Alain Badiou, Alizadeh argues that far from presenting the reader with an affirmative and positivist portrayal of an existing Aboriginal identity, Fogarty's poem in fact challenges and reinvents identitarian assumptions apropos of Aboriginality in contemporary, multicultural Australia. In addition, Badiou, as a (post-) Marxist thinker, is an apt choice for providing a progressive perspective that does not repeat the existing postcolonial and postmodernist assumptions apropos of aesthetics, multiculturality, and identity.'

Archipelagos of Sense : Thinking About a Decolonised Australian Poetics Peter Minter , 2013 single work criticism
— Appears in: Southerly , vol. 73 no. 1 2013; (p. 155-169)

'In Archipelagos of Sense: Thinking About a Decolonised Australian Poetics, Peter Minter expands on Les Murray's line that 'the whole world is an archipelago', proffering an archipelagic sensibility where 'locations on the surface of the planet can be understood as earthly temporal and spatial archipelagos'...(Vickery and Alizadeh, 18)

Politics of Indigeneity in Fogarty's Poetry Sean Gorman , 2011 single work criticism
— Appears in: CLCWeb : Comparative Literature and Culture , June vol. 13 no. 2 2011;
'In his article "Politics of Indigeneity in Fogarty's Poetry" Sean Gorman discusses Indigenous themes and issues with regards to the poetry of Murri writer Lionel Fogarty. As Fogarty is seen as a poet who writes complex prose, his material challenges non-Indigenous readerships by subverting Standard English and conventional reading practices. Gorman suggests strategies by which to engage with Fogarty's material and, employing the theories of Mikhail Bakhtin, namely heteroglossia and dialogism, to arrive at a better understanding of the rich and complex nature of Fogarty's work. Gorman executes his analysis in relation to the political debates that have arisen since the Little Children Are Sacred report was made public and the intervention in Australia's Northern Territory occurred in 2007.'

Anti-Nativism in Australian Indigenous Literature Teresa Podemska-Abt , 2010 single work criticism
— Appears in: Kultura Historia Globalizacja , no. 7 2010; (p. 53-64)
'What in today's literary discourse are the reality and the world created by the words: nativism, nativity, the native, native? Why do we still speak and communicate with them and use them in different contexts, even though we know that these words often carry a negative emotional meaning load, taking us to spaces, times, and experiences of colonial suffering, despite their basis in academic arguments. In Australia such issues have been addressed by many Indigenous writers, amongst them — M. Langton, A. Moreton- Robinson, Mudrooroo, C. Watego, T. Birch, F. Bayet — Charlton, to name just a few.'
