Tim Winton's Fiction

Book - 2006
Rate this:
Tim Winton, one of Australia's foremost writers, has won numerous awards and has twice been shortlisted for the Booker Prize. With one book now a play and his latest in pre-production for a film, he is an obvious candidate for closer study. Mind the Country is the first book-length critical study of this prolific, internationally acclaimed writer. The book explores themes that have become a valued part of Australian readers' personal experience-the traditional versus the modern, the isolated versus the integrated, the local versus the global, and the spiritual versus the expedient. Mind the Country shows how Winton's themes are most forcefully expressed through his vivid characters and stories, and how these stories interact with, and comment on, each other. Through his love of his homeland, Western Australia-with its landscapes, seascapes, and cities-Winton presents a theatre of the mind, creating scenarios of danger, solitude, self-discovery, and creativity.
