A Lost Dimension: The Immigrant’s Experience In the Work of David Malouf
The purpose of this paper is to discuss the immigrant's experience in some of Malouf's fiction and poetry. What I am not trying to do is to reconstruct Malouf's biography out of his literary works. Many of Malouf's novels, stories, and poems have clearly biographical elements, but I do not want to demonstrate the singular fate of David Malouf's family in Brisbane. What I am interested in is how the author portrays the experiences of three generations of migrants in Australia, experiences not necessarily his own.
