Abstract:

This title, first published in 1987 and considered a classic in the field of cultural and historical geography, examines the poetic constitution of colonial society. Through a far-reaching exploration of Australia's mapping, narrative description, early urbanism, and bush mythology, this book exposes the mytho-poetic mechanisms of empire. A powerfully written account of the ways in which language, history, and geography influenced the territorial theatre of nineteenth-century imperialism, the book is also a call to think, write, and live differently.
