Kelly Sullivan looks into Robinson’s monumental works Stones of Aran and asks whether it is possible to collect all the contradictions of the human world – geology, biology, personal history, myth and politics – into ‘a state of consciousness even fleetingly worthy of its ground’? Sullivan contends that the driving imperative of both Pilgrimage and Labyrinth form an aesthetics of ‘not-knowing’ coupled with authorial self-doubt about representing place.
