The poetic of place: Judith Wrigth’s at Cooloola. An Australian View

Veronica Brady (Università dell'Australia dell'Ovest)

Abstract

L’articolo denuncia la crisi dell’odierna civiltà tecnologica in relazione alla terra, solitamente considerata un oggetto da sfruttare e conquistare; l’autore esprime il bisogno di sviluppare una ‘poetica del luogo’ che trae ispirazione dal rapporto rispettoso che altre civiltà sono state capaci di stabilire con la propria terra. L’analisi dell’opera letteraria di Judith Wright mostra la complessa concezione di un’australiana che esplora il legame tra gli Aborigeni e la terra, e il modo in cui l’insediamento dei bianchi lo hainterrotto.
