Reviews

"Writing Australian Unsettlement is a daring and remarkable study of intertextuality and appropriation as poetic tools. Disassembling and reassembling a variety of generic models, he demonstrates with the greatest aplomb how such contemporary techniques as collage, recycling, visualization, and translation are currently reanimating the field of Australian poetry. Only a scholar who is himself a discerning poet could have brought it off so elegantly." - Marjorie Perloff, Emeriti Professor of English, Stanford University, USA

"A brilliantly original piece of critical and scholarly work, Writing Australian Unsettlement is intellectually adventurous, investigating and challenging foundational assumptions of the literary and postcolonial fields. Drawing from an eclectic range of source material and theorists, Michael Farrell makes a major contribution to the rethinking of the postcolonial paradigm as it is currently happening around the globe." - Philip Mead, Professor of Australian Literature, University of Western Australia
