The Critical Companion to Kim Scott - Readers, Language, Interpretation

Author(s): Ruby Lowe (Editor); Phillip Morrissey (Editor); Marion Campbell (Editor)

Indigenous Society

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.
