              Kim Scott: Readers, Language, Interpretation
               

              Kim Scott: Readers, Language, Interpretation (PDF ebook)

              Edited by Ruby, Lowe; Phillip, Morrissey; Marion, Campbell

              This original collection of essays by emerging and established Aboriginal and Settler scholars provides interpretative and theoretical perspectives on Kim Scott's work. Twelve essays deal with all of Scott's novels to date, along with his collaborative non-fiction and his work in... the Wirlomin Noongar Stories and Language Project. The collection as a whole amounts to a case for Kim Scott as Australia's most representative novelist today. Over a quarter of a century he has explored and unravelled the intertwined destinies of Aboriginal and Settler from the moment of invasion, contact and occupancy to the contradictory aspirations and government policies of today. In carrying out this project Scott consistently engages with the history and discourses that shape the national imaginary. Paradoxically it is this focus on the national that establishes Kim Scott as an international writer of stature.

              Spinoza's Overcoat: Travels with writers and poets
               

              Spinoza's Overcoat: Travels with writers and poets (EPUB ebook)

              By Subhash, Jaireth

              'It starts to rain as I step out of my hotel ....' So begins Subhash Jaireth's striking collection of essays on the writers, and their writing, that have enriched his own life. The works of Franz Kafka, Marina Tsvetaeva, Mikhail Bulgakov, Paul Celan, Hiromi Ito, Dutch philosopher... Baruch Spinoza and others ignite in him the urge to travel (both physically and in spirit), almost like a pilgrim, to the places where such writers were born or died or wrote. In each essay a new emotional plane is reached revealing enticing connections. As a novelist, poet, essayist and translator born into a multilingual environment, Jaireth truly understands the power of words across languages and their integral connections to life of the body and the spirit. Drawing on years of research, translation and travel Spinoza's Overcoat - and its illuminations of loss, mortality and the reverie of writing - will linger with readers. 'Eloquent and original, Jaireth's meditations on the lives-of-poets are full of astonishing details, tender connections and the magnificent melancholy of devotion to words. Encompassing matters of translation, love, mortality and homage, this is a rare model of what might be called "literary philosophy" and an utter joy and surprise for anyone interested in the reading and writing life ...' - GAIL JONES, author of The Death of Noah Glass Subhash Jaireth was born in India. Between 1969 and 1978 he spent nine years in Russia studying geology and Russian literature. In 1986 he migrated to Australia. He has published writing in Hindi, English and Russian and his novel After Love (Transit Lounge 2012) was published in Spain in 2018.

              Talking North: The Journey of Australia's First Asian Language
               

              Talking North: The Journey of Australia's First Asian Language (PDF ebook)

              By Paul, S. Thomas

              What makes one nation curious about another nation? Curious enough that the study of the other's culture and language becomes a natural commitment or something that could be described as a national project? This question lies behind much of the writing in this book as it explores... the history, education policy and changing fortunes of the Indonesian/Malay language in Australia. While formal education programs are central to this discussion, individual effort and chance encounters with the language are also examined in the context of Australia's evolving historical ties with its near neighbours. These relationships have grown in importance since the end of the Second World War, but Australians typically continue to view the region as 'testing'. This is exemplified by the Australian-Indonesian relationship, the primary focus of this volume. While much has been written on the political relationship, this book builds its view of the two countries' interactions on the cultural activity of language learning. This is, perhaps, the most fundamental of cultural activities in any effort to promote mutual understanding.

              Letters to Australia: Essays from 1954-1955, Volume 5 (PDF ebook)

              By Julius, Stone

              Queen Elizabeth's visit showed a strong remaining affection for the crown, despite the nation's shift of its power alliances to the USA. In the USA, McCarthyism crashed with the discrediting of its leading figure; in Argentina the autocratic populist movement of Peron came to an ...end; West Germany continued its spectacular economic growth; and Yugoslavia made a bid for neutrality, weakening the Soviet Union's grip on the Balkan states.
