Like Henry David Thoreau, it appears Chatwin also took both a syncretic and embodied approach to his apprehension of place. Put simply, this is to learn with the body, rather than just the brain Krauth , 5. Meaning imparted through narratives of memory, lived experience and knowledge, turns space into place for people. Walking therefore creates place, and in postcolonial geographies becomes a starting point for reflection and scholarship Murphy , And yet, in another sense it was already filled with mystery and hopes as yet unrealised, a landscape ready for inscription: an object of desire.
Honey Ant Each of the Ancients now basking in the sunlight put his left foot forward and called out a second name. He put his right foot forward and called out a third name. He named a waterhole, the reedbeds, the gum trees — calling to right and left, calling all things into being and weaving their names into verses.
Here the frontier is manifested as a world called into being through walking; the link is made between place and its creation, walking, naming and dwelling, as well as the comforts of a rightful place now basking in the sunlight. However, they are not. As Homi Bhabha argues, the problems of cultures emerge most at the boundaries between them, sometimes called by others the frontier.

The frontier of The songlines is not linear, but nodal and discontinuous. Then, once again Chatwin cleaves to romanticism: from what I knew of the Songlines Chatwin comes full circle; the frontier is a confusing place. She was a secretary, a pliant brown girl in a brown knitted dress.
TS, 5 The reader perceives a young woman in every way unremarkable, perhaps shy with newcomers, preferring to keep to herself. Rather than romanticising Aboriginal people, Chatwin presents a continuum of Aboriginal humanity, a potpourri of traditional and modern, according well with a lived experience of the town and other contact zones.
Conclusion Early critical reception of The songlines was shaped by postcolonial theory during the emergence of Aboriginal land rights in Australia, and a corresponding period of introspection for anthropologists. This led to significant themes and strengths being overlooked, which are now being retrieved under the influence of ecocriticism. It is suggested embodiment helped Chatwin gain a clearer perception of landscape, delivering a strong textual sense of place that still resonates today. All references are to the Picador edition, denoted in text as TS 2. A more complete review of the criticism of The songlines is in preparation for a longer version of this paper.

More recently, I have conducted ecocritical research in Australian literature and socio-environmental history from the perspective of the ethics and poetics of decolonisation. My work is informed by ecological feminist and postcolonial thought, as well as by multi-species studies and climate change research, all of which are interwoven in my most recent monograph, Dancing with Disaster I am currently returning to my interest in European Romanticism, with research on ecopoetic arts of resistance and regeneration in British Romantic verse, and the ways in which the legacy of Romantic ecopoetics has been taken up in very different socio-ecological circumstances by several modern and contemporary poets in North America, Australia and Britain.
In addition, I am involved in ongoing research in religion and ecology, and on the cultural, ethical and affective dimensions of accelerating environmental and climate change and species extinction.
