This essay attempts to address Janet Frame’s fondness for strategies of literal expression, a formal aspect of her work often pinpointed by the critics but never examined systematically, perhaps because it displays a mercurial quality, inseparable from the author’s wit, which resists easy classification. What can be established at any rate is that Frame’s leaning towards literality cannot be dissociated from her interest in metaphor – rather as if the literal, by virtue of constituting the ground zero of metaphor, implicitly pointed to further layers of meaning subliminally encoded in her texts. Thus it is argued that the literal in Frame tends to gesture towards its equivalent in metaphor, and vice versa, in a way which can be correlated with her thematic preoccupation with another shift of levels, occurring whenever she stages a creative personality keen to transform the ontological given provided by the real in terms of intuited correspondences in a more visionary dimension.

The title of Robert Drewe’s latest novel, Grace (2005), shares with J. M. Coetzee’s antonymous Disgrace (1999) a polysemous quality which derives from both works’ attempt to capture the ethical stance of a society in a way which has personal and political ramifications at the same time. The Australian text shows some concern with the predicament of a boatload of asylum seekers from Indonesia, who later escape from their detention centre in the Kimberleys; but Drewe’s progressive denunciation of Australia’s treatment of refugees is potentially compromised by the Australian anxiety over territorial integrity which provides an unshakeable context for this kind of thematic development. More generally, my paper will explore the ambiguities attending a discursive move which seeks to absorb race into larger categories of political meaning, and the related difficulty of achieving the ‘grace’ of complete freedom from colonialist parameters in an Australian culture where some suspense over territory continues to brood.

This essay offers a close reading of Mona Minim and the Smell of the Sun, a tale for children often thought to be unique in the corpus of Janet Frame in that its implied reading public compelled the author to keep her distance from her usual preoccupation with the great negative themes of twentieth-century consciousness. Yet Frame’s declaration in an interview that this was her favourite among her own published books should alert us to the possibility that thematic continuities subterraneously connect it to the rest of the work. In particular, the exploration of animal life encouraged by the genre can be seen to be paradigmatic of her interest in alternative ontologies and to encode the concern with creativity which is a touchstone of her entire output. Typically, too, the figure of the artist – in this case, of the story-teller – is invested with a redemptive value for the beleaguered individual, and cannot be separated from a metafictional mode of representation which is possibly unexpected in what purports to be a simple fairy tale.
