Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

The article denounces the crisis that present-day technological civilization has in its relation with the land, usually considered an object to exploit and conquer; the author advocates the need to develop a 'poetics of place' inspired by the respectful relationship that other civilizations have been able to establish with their land. The analysis of Judith Wright's literary works shows the complexity of an Australian view that explores the link between Aboriginal people and the land, and the way in which white settlement interrupted it.
