Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperJournal articleResearchpeer-review

  • Department of English
It is argued that Tóibín is not the typical 'revisionist' intellectual that some have made him into, but a humanist and a sort of in-between, making a virtue of his own ambivalences towards notions of tradition, community and nationhood. The essay makes an analysis of these ambivalences with reference to two essays from the author's book "Walking along the Border" (or "Bad Blood").
