Sample text

Modernism’s simultaneous emphasis on exile and dispossession and on the imaginative transcendence of differences can also be seen to operate alongside a (romantic and modernist) primitivism that seeks in cultures perceived to be less developed the authenticity lost by a dehumanizing modernity, but I would suggest that the novel can also be interpreted as a postcolonial reply to modernist responses to the primitive: in the wilderness of Australia, Richard Somers, the protagonist of D. H. Lawrence’s Kangaroo (1923), understood now that the Romans had preferred death to exile.

Lawrence’s Kangaroo (1923), understood now that the Romans had preferred death to exile. He could sympathize now with Ovid on the Danube, hungering for Rome and blind to the land around him, blind to the savages. So Somers felt blind to Australia, and blind to the uncouth Australians.

(Lawrence 1950, 26) Whether intentionally or coincidentally,18 Malouf’s novel “writes back” to Lawrence’s, or, more broadly, to a metropolitan vision of Australia by making 30 Autobiographies of Others the exiled Latin poet undergo a transformation that reveals the “raw life” of the “savages” around him to be closer to the “unity of things”, allowing Ovid to see the world “differently”, feeling himself “loosen and flow again” (IL 65).
