(p.112) Chapter Four Revised Versions: Place and Memory
Ciaran Carson
Liverpool University Press

This chapter analyzes the role of place and memory in the works of Ciaran Carson. It suggests that Carson uses memory as a mode of consolation and it also serves as an organ of retrieval and reclamation that implicitly upbraids the procedures of official historiography. It explains that through this process, Belfast emerges as a palimpsest of memories elaborated in time and space in the works of Carson.

Keywords:   place, memory, Ciaran Carson, mode of consolation, historiography, time and space, Belfast
