Inspire, expire: Masculinity, mortality and meaning in Tim Winton's Breath
Thomas, Roie 2010. Inspire, expire: Masculinity, mortality and meaning in Tim Winton's Breath. Journal of Men, Masculinities and Spirituality. 4 (2), pp. 54 - 65.
Tim Winton's latest novel and winner of the Miles Franklin award Breath (2009) is investigated here within a framework of theistic existentialism alongside a critique of masculinities in the Australian context. This novel presents a particular take on hegemonic masculinity and this dovetails neatly, I argue, with a continuum of spiritual consciousness and responsiveness drawn up by Danish creative writer and theological maverick, Soren Kierkegaard (1811-1855).
