This chapter introduces David Malouf, a writer known for his concern with encounters between self and other. It describes his works as possessing a strong tendency to find in otherness—or alterity—the orientation and stimulus for a creative unsettling of identity. It provides some monographs that contain descriptions of Malouf as a writer and notes that he shares the same concerns with another famous writer, namely Rudyard Kipling. It compares Malouf with Kipling and studies the postcolonial character of Malouf's writing.

Keywords:   David Malouf, self, other, identity, Rudyard Kipling, postcolonial character
