Overview

Revisits the rather well-worn subject of body as landscape, conceptualizing inscription as that writing which brings bodies and/as landscapes into being. Davies (education, James Cook U., Australia) explores the relationship of body to landscape through works of fiction, the experiences of environmentalists, and through the development of writing strategies. Addressed are the relationships to land had by Australian women and by Australian male environmentalists; Japanese students, academics, and environmentalists; and landscape in the writings of Yasunari Kawabata, Sam Watson, Rodney Hall, and Janette Turner Hospital. While this is an academic book dealing with literary theory, Davies writes for the non-initiate, making the volume suitable for even advanced high schoolers. Annotation c.
