A Review of ‘Isabelle of the Moon and Stars'

Vahri Mckenzie

Research output: Contribution to Newspaper/Magazine/BulletinBook/Film/Article review


3 essays engaging with Adorno’s ‘Essay as Form’, tacking between art and scholarship. Each explores the topic signalled and reveals how essay form itself enables creative engagement.
‘A Review’ of the novel Isabelle of the Moon and Stars that reveals how the prose expresses thematic desire. In keeping with Adorno’s perspectives, simultaneously committed to intellectual inquiry through treatment of facts and the significance of responsive experience. It takes an approach to evaluating the novel’s success omitted from other reviews through a focus writing desire, filtered by my own experience as a practicing writer.
An invited contribution. Part of an initiative to develop online content for Westerly Magazine (international literary and culture magazine with WA focus) generating higher than average views and social media engagements.
