Did they find something to admire or abrogate the memory brhce the place which was missing in my own observations? Later, however, residents in the region contradicted the account of events depicted in Chatwin’s book.

Given how central the songlines were to survival, lots of mysticism grew up around them — i. There was plenty in this book that irritated me, and at times, yes things that fascinated me. I had great expectations about this book, it is one of the favorites of my wife and for years it stood temptingly staring at me in our library.

From The Songlines I went on to read a pile of other books written by Chatwin not really noticing that the function of Australia and the Aborigines in the story is to prove that Chatwin’s beliefs about the role of a nomadic lifestyle and men at the height of their physical prowess defending the home fires from predators in the evolution of humanity are right.

Fact blurs into fiction in Chatwin’s travel writing, perhaps it is better to say that the journey is inside his head, to pull the fact and fiction apart would be to pull the man’s head apart. We want to know about the mythical dreaming animals bruxe dot the aborigine view of their land as much as Bruce does. There may even be an age limit for something like that.

I wasted my time ccanti it. As I came to understand the concept, I was moved by the perfect combination of reverence for the land, remembering the ancestors, and avoiding getting lost in a harsh and unhospitable landscape.

Read the short, second italicised section, the joyful account of ringing the island to announce the decision. Alice rated it did not like it Aug 26, He explores this abstract concept through the agency of Arkady and a cast of other Whites who live and work amongst the Aborigines in the harsh heart of Australia, defending th Bruce Chatwin’s book is ostensibly an examination of the Australian Aboriginal notion of the Songline: The migration itself, like the pilgrimage, is the hard journey: Oe Songlines by Bruce Chatwin.

When Chatwin kept to his vei observations of the people of the Outback, whether of European extraction or Aboriginal, I was riveted.
