Australian Fiction and the Lure of Painting

Michael Ackland (Università James Cook)

Abstract

Questo saggio studia il perché i pittori, le tecniche pittoriche e i temi legati all’arte siano presenti nella narrativa australiana dal colonialismo ad oggi. La pittura infatti ha rivestito a lungo un ruolo importante nei diari dei coloni e nella loro narrativa, diventando un emblema dei dilemmi rivelatori e delle ispirazioni condivise dagli autori. In breve, viene dimostrato come l’arte pittorica sia stata scelta come Arte Sorella della scrittura antipodea dei bianchi.
