Short Black 7 - by David Malouf (Paperback)

Silence was a deeply established tradition. Men used it as a form of self-protection; it saved those who had experienced the horrors of war from the emotional trauma of experiencing it all over again in the telling. And it saved women and children, back home, from the terrible knowledge of what they had seen and walked away from ... One result of this was that the men who had actually lived through Gallipoli and the trenches did not write about it. In the century since the Gallipoli landing, Anzac Day has taken on a different tenor for each succeeding generation. Perceptively and evocatively, David Malouf traces the meaning of this 'one day' when Australians stop to reflect on endurance, service and the folly of war. He shows how what was once history has now passed into legend, and how we have found in Anzac Day 'a truly national occasion.' David Malouf is one of Australia's most celebrated writers. In a career spanning four decades, he has written poetry, essays, fiction and opera libretti.
