Sažetak
Colm Tóibín's novel 'Brooklyn' and Colum McCann's 'TransAtlantic' centre on themes of migration and immigration. At the core of 'TransAtlantic' is a story about a family of four generations of women who move back and forth between Ireland and the USA and Canada between 1845 and 2011. On the other hand, 'Brooklyn' unfolds the story about an Irish immigrant woman in the USA in the early 1950s and explores her various attempts to embrace the new home. My paper sets out to explore the concept of home and migration in the two novels in relation to the mechanisms of cultural and historical belonging. It will show that when migration is concerned, the concept of „home“ complicates the notion of an illusory or fixed place and is closely tied up with the sense of loss and displacement. Moreover, it will also discuss how the concept of home and belonging shapes the sense of the self, national and transnational identities, including those structures of feeling that Paul Gilroy termed „the inner dialectics of diaspora identification“.
