Title: Tipping Points and Putting Together as and Art; A Writer's Guide to Intertexuality : The accompanying exegetical work
Author: Lucas, Travis
Issue Date: 2020
School/Discipline: School of Humanities : English and Creative Writing
Abstract: Tipping Points is a collection of short creative works that explores modern Australia through satire, absurdism, magical realism and humour. The collection centres on character-focused adventures through power imbalances, financial hardships, slipping realities, and caricaturist apocalypses. Putting Together as an Art: A Writer’s Guide to Intertextuality is a complementary exegetical response in the form of a handbook. It adapts aspects of intertextual theory into practical tools for creators to use in their everyday practice, and analyses how collections of art can be enhanced by their physical and metaphorical relationships to other texts.
