On the Shifting Sands of Affinity: ‘Identity Migration’ and Ideology in Liam O’Flaherty’s Autobiographies
Mid Sweden University, Faculty of Human Sciences, Department of Humanities.
2015 (English)In: The Leaving of Ireland: Migration and Belonging in Irish Literature and Film / [ed] John Lynch and Katherina Dodou, Oxford: Peter Lang Publishing Group, 2015, 187-208 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This chapter examines the autobiographies of Liam O'Flaherty, looking at the idea of O'Flaherty as a kind of 'identity migrant', especially where an ideological stance is concerned. Here, the necessity of adapting to changing circumstances of new environments is seen as a sort of doubling, in which the mental landscape is rearranged so as to simultaneously accommodate ideologies of two worlds - that of O'Flaherty's 'state of origin' and that of his adopted world. Through O'Flaherty's travels and various engagements with disparate ideologies and political systems, the chapter maps out the tensions and contradictions evident in his ongoing sense of subjectivity.
