Formatted Abstract/Summary
Tadhg's ability to see beyond boundaries and limitations, evidenced in his metaphoric reading of Hardy's poem, provides a glimpse of the core strength of his own contribution to feminist and identity politics in Ireland - beyond the material and practical- as companion to that of Hardy's own radical refusal, via literature, to reduce the representation of women or men to any of the received assumptions of his day. All that remains is for Tadhg to clarify something he has so far failed to do, and that is whether his interpretation of the poem represents me as the iceberg or the ship!
