|Title:||Waking the Dead: Antigone, Ismene and Anne Enright's Narrators in Mourning||Authors:||Meaney, Gerardine||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/6014||Date:||31-Oct-2011||Abstract:||Reflecting in 2008 on the link between her groundbreaking work on gender and her more recent work on war, Judith Butler proposed a relationship between liveable and grievable lives: 'it is very often a struggle to make certain kinds of lost life publicly grievable'. This essay takes Butler's exploration of the 'politics of mourning' as its starting place for a reading of The Gathering and of the short story, 'My Little Sister' from Taking Pictures.||Type of material:||Book Chapter||Publisher:||Irish Academic Press||Keywords:||Enright, Anne, 1962-.
