An Environmental Venture into the Land of Voss

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Environmentalism; Exploration; Voss; Patrick White.

"Voss" (1957) by Patrick White (1912-1990) takes the reader on a venture to unexplored parts of the Australian space. This study aims to follow the traces of White's early environmental and social awareness. It endeavours to bring the extra-literary to the surface in order to identify the consequences of colonial expansion on the Aboriginal people and the land. An aesthetic and historiographic exploration into the land of Voss will reveal White's proposal for a never-ending adventure.
