The Geopolitical Aesthetic: Cinema and Space in the World System (Indiana UP 1992)
Hyperspace; cognitive mapping equated with the postmodern condition; having lost touch with their past, men seek to trace a path towards discerning [their] social positioning and to figure out where [they][ are and what landscapes and forces confront [them] in a late twentieth century (p.3; quoted in quoted in Loredana Salis, So Greek with Consequence: Classical Tragedy in Contemporary Irish Drama, PhD Diss., UUC, 2005.)

[T]he story of the private individual destiny is always an allegory of the embattled situation of the public national project. (p.69; quoted in Gerry Smyth, The Novel and the Nation: Studies in New Irish Fiction, London: Pluto 1997, p.20; also in Marjorie Howes, Yeatss Nations: Gender, Class, and Irishness, Cambridge UP 1996, Introduction, p.11.)

[I]n the west, conventionally, political commitment is recontained and psychologized or subjectivized by way of the public-private split. (p.71.)
[P]sychology, or more specifically, libidinal investment, is to be read in primarily political and social terms (p.72.)
Such allegorical structures ... are not so much absent from first-world cultural texts as they are unconscious (p.79). [The foregoing all quoted in Marjorie Howes, Yeatss Nations: Gender, Class, and Irishness (Cambridge UP 1996), Introduction, as supra.]
'[T]he telling of the individual story and the individual experience cannot but ultimately involve the whole laborious telling of the collectivity itself.'
