Abstract

Their homes were worlds unto themselves. The fishermen were not nationalists of any sort, defined themselvesasneither Newfoundlanders nor colonials, but residents of chthonic origin, sprung from the earth of .whatever little island or cove they had grown up in. (johnson 1998: 454) "Good for you," saidGrandpa as I stoodwith my mortar board and gown, clutching my various awards and diplomas ... "Good for you," "ille bhigruaidh. This means that you will never have to work again." What he meant was that I would not spend my life pulling the end of a bucksaw or pushing the boat off the CalumRuadh's Point in freezing water up to my waist. (MacLeod, 1999: 107)
