“Sweetland” by Michale Crummey as an Elegy on Disappearing Fishing Communities
Languages of publication
Sweetland is a ﬁctional record of the resettlement of a ﬁshing town in Newfoundland due to a ﬁshing crisis caused by a cod moratorium. The main character, Moses Sweetland, refuses to leave his home island and by feigning his own death manages to stay behind when all other inhabitants depart. The article focuses on the transformations that the deserted island undergoes, with special focus on Gothic elements, the motif of the map and Pierre Nora’s concept of lieu de m´emoire.
