Summary
Includes a brief review of the two papers p. 3; Brady's account of contemporary Aboriginal culture analyses two books and a film, and suggests Aboriginal people may be in a state of diaspora not exile, and finishes with a view of Aboriginal suffering on one hand, but on the other the profound inadequacy of the culture which condemns them for this suffering p. 111-117; Arthur finds parallels in linguistic and political positions between Aboriginal expressions of exile and those of recent immigrant writers, and describes changes in the way both groups are presenting themselves in writing p. 119-129
