Mural visions : viewing histories in the works of Michael Ondaatje
Quiazon, Regina Maria (2006) Mural visions : viewing histories in the works of Michael Ondaatje. PhD thesis, Victoria University.
This thesis seeks to challenge traditional notions of literary interpretation by examining the interaction between visual and verbal representation in literature. To this end, I critically examine several elements of visual culture in the literary works of poet/novelist Michael Ondaatje and seek to understand the ways in which the visual as practice and discourse can be seen to exercise power. I argue that images are crucial participants in the politics of knowledge production and that a reading of images must always contend with an account of their historical representations.
