Abstract: This essay explores the representation of public space in The Visitor and The Springs of Affection: Stories of Dublin by Maeve Brennan. In particular, it explores Brennan's representation of the negotiation of urban and suburban public space by women and girls. In order to define and describe the movement of bodies within Brennan's stories, the concept of ‘choreographies of place’ is used, placing the emphasis on physical experience, and on the fictional representation of these experiences by Brennan in her work. In reading Brennan's stories and novella as a source for an expanded understanding of the lived experience of Dublin city by women and girls, this essay draws upon the critical insights of both literary studies and urban theory.
