Summary

In this third Quarterly Essay of 2003, Germaine Greer suggests that embracing Aboriginality is the only way Australia can fully imagine itself as a nation. In a wide-ranging exploration, she looks at the interdependence of black and white and suggests not how the the 'Aborigine question' may be settled, but how a sense of being Aboriginal might save the soul of Australia. In a sweeping essay touching on everything from Henry Lawson to multiculturalism, she argues that Australia must enter the Aboriginal web of dreams.
