Abstract

In " The View from Castle Rock " (2006) Alice Munro imagines her ancestors' journey from Scotland to Canada. She uses the setting of the ship (a heterotopia, in Foucault's reading) to introduce disruption and show changes in her characters, revealing lines of flight. But Munro also uses her ancestors' transatlantic crossing to claim her Scottish and literary heritages, in a slightly subversive way, drawing attention to the female body and suggesting parallels between parting from a child and parting from a story. Furthermore, the crossing is also a journey into her earlier fiction.
