摘要In this article, the author identifies critical connections between the transformation of food
in the last two hundred thirty years and arguments by animal studies, indigenous studies,
ecocriticism, ecofeminism, and environmental history scholars. She does that through a
reading of two works of Australian literature: Merlinda Bobis’s cli-fi novel Locust Girl and Evie
Wyld’s post-pastoral fiction All the Birds Singing. Bobis’s novel raises questions about the given
transformation as it directly relates to the birth of the commercial kangaroo-meat industry,
depletion of arable land as a direct consequence of the overuse of it for introduced species of
animals reductively called livestock, and obliteration of extensive grain belts in Australia. Wyld’s
novel addresses the given transformation in an implicit critique of Australia’s sheep industry
and, by implication, Australia’s cattle industry. Both constitute Australian pastoral, which has
profoundly transformed food in Australia and eradicated interspecies balances thousands of
years old. The novels represent the notice, as limited as that is, in contemporary Australian
literature of the radical transformation of food since the late eighteenth century. Illustrating
her argument by referring to the two novels, the author argues that literary food studies must
reflect greater engagement with ongoing interspecies abuses that define food production.
Difficult as those injustices are to confront, they point to the gross moral and material failings
in the transformation of food since the late eighteenth century
