Wevers 5: Colonialism in dreamhunter

March 25, 2011

Dreamhunter also speaks to the colonial modern. Within its imaginary of social and cultural control lies a darker subjugation, one which is figurally tied to slavery and colonisation, both of lands and peoples.”

p196 (my emphasis) Lydia Wevers (2007) “Fold in the map: figuring modernity in Gail Jones’s Dreams of Speaking and Elizabeth Knox’s Dreamhunter.” Australian Literary Studies (23:2) 2007, 187-98.
