|Abstract:||The contrasting ideas of ancestry and diasporic cultural identity portrayed in the works of Thomas Keneally and Christopher Koch are analysed. The concept of an arborescent Irish ancestry depending on a linear and direct connection portrayed in Thomas Keneally's novels such as 'Bring Larks and Heroes' is compared to Christopher Koch's rhizomatic Irish ancestry based on lateral, networked relationships expressed in his novels 'Highways to a War' (1995) and 'Out of Ireland' (1999).|
