Abstract

This article explores literary practices placing the writer in dialogue with the places he has inhabited recently while researching the Australian novel. This includes a fictocritical engagement with place-based Australian literature (via Xavier Herbert and Randolph Stow) and a maverick whizz through deconstruction and genre studies. Written in an elegiac mode punctuated by an environmental humanities countersignature, this example of period rhetoric embodies autobiography in the Anthropocene, the event horizon of human signature.
