contains four substantial articles, as well as several reviews, and the
translation of a Greek short story.

Andrew Johnson's article considers the sometimes strained relationship
between poetry and autobiography in Charles Wright's 'Tattoos.'

Soe Tjen Marching examines the diaries of two Indonesian women, and
considers their hesitancy to expose their essentially private records to
public scrutiny.

Judy Dyson argues that botanical illustration can be encoded by social
and medical discourses concerning sexuality, race and psychology.

William Tregoning presents a peculiarly Australian understanding of
Derrida's notion of hospitality through a reading of the work of Margaret
Sommerville.

The 3rd edition of Andrew Milner and Jeffrey Browitt's Contemporary
Cultural Theory, reviewed by Alexander Cooke, gives an insight into the
breadth of theoretical approaches available to 21st century scholars.

Colonial history can be decomposed into muteness, as Chris Danta
recognises in his review of John Mateer's Loanwords. But in a failed
translation characteristic of the loanword lies hidden the hope of a more
desultory form of universality.

Nowhere does this elusive goal impresses more urgently than in Sonja
Besford's fascination with sexuality and ethnicity in her poetry
collection arrivals & departures, reviewed by Jasna Novakovic.

Dimitris Vardoulakis looks at Giuseppina D'Oro's Collingwood and the
Metaphysics of Experience , an examination of the Oxford philosopher's
Kantian legacy.

Sam Everingham reviews the 2002 issue of Southerly entitled 'Lines of
Concern,' seeing in it an attempt to define a literary model of social
justice in a particularly local context.

Andrew Johnson's review of Stephen Matthews' Les Murray argues that
instead of focussing on Murray's controversial politics one should focus
on the poetics of his work.

Caron James takes issue with the perception of specificity in her review
of Australian Literary Studies, concentrating on the representation of
Asian communities in Australia.

Tassos Kapernaros's short story 'Carnivore', translated into English for
the first time by Dimitris Vardoulakis, exhibits a Borgesian sensibility
in a Greek setting, blurring the boundary between description and parable.
