AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Ashcroft discusses the conceptual and actual boundaries which contain/construct the notion of 'home'. He suggests that 'home' is deeply connected to a sense of self and 'like that sense of self, "home" brings with it the inescapable tyranny of limits, of borders. Whether home is a place, a location, a feeling, a tradition, an ethnicity, it carries with it the sometimes imperceptible, but ever-present reality of boundaries'. He illustrates this argument with examples from Arnold Zable's Jewels and Ashes (1991) and Ameican writer Toni Morrison's Paradise (1998) as well as a number of critical texts.
