McLoughlin, Nigel F (2016)
Publisher: Bloomsbury Academic
Languages: English
Types: Part of book or chapter of book
Subjects: PN0080, LB, PN
In the chapter that follows I intend to examine the theoretical crossing points between\ud the new mobilities paradigm (Sheller and Urry 2006), Text World Theory (Werth 1999;\ud Gavins 2007), and Stockwell’s (2009, 2011) model of literary resonance, in order to\ud generate a framework through which the reversals, accelerations and shifts in time in\ud the work of contemporary Irish poet, Eavan Boland may be effectively analysed.\ud Several of Boland’s poems contain challenges to temporal and/or spatial normality in\ud order to make wider points about the nature of reality as we remember and reexperience\ud it. For this reason her work offers a challenging test to the framework\ud proposed.\ud I will begin by outlining the new mobilities paradigm, and follow this with brief\ud outlines of Text World Theory and Stockwell’s model of literary resonance in order to\ud show why they may be effectively combined as a theoretical framework which can be\ud used to address imaginative movement and mobile sense-making. This is followed by\ud the analysis of several examples, and some conclusions drawn from those analyses.
