Phantom Dwelling: A Discussion of Judith Wright's "Late Style"

Journal Article


Abstract


  • This article addresses ‘‘the problem’’ of Judith Wright’s last volume of poetry,

    Phantom Dwelling (1985), seeking to understand why it has been neglected by

    literary scholars despite very positive reviews. It positions this work in relation to

    Edward Said’s thesis on ‘‘late style’’ (2006), seventeenth-century Japanese poet,

    Matsuo Basho¯ ’s The Narrow Road to the Deep North and ‘‘Record of the Hut of

    the Phantom Dwelling’’, and Romanticism.
