Izarra, Laura, "The Irish Diaspora in Argentina" in British Association for Irish Studies, Bulletin 32 (October, 2002) pp. 5-9. This is one of the very few serious articles on Irish-Argentine literature. The author, Professor of Literature at the University of São Paulo, and Co-Editor of the Brazilian Journal of Irish Studies, analyses William Bulfin's works in the dual context of Irish-Argentine migration. 'Bulfin's stories reaffirm the triumph of the Irish over the indigenous: exiles are "Irish in thought, in sympathy, and in character" in a different society.' Bulfin, who was born in Co. Offaly and emigrated to Argentina in the 1880s, was influenced by the typical Irish nationalism of the time: 'historical recollections include victories and defeats of internal wars as well as a nationalist stance against English imperialist policy an cruelty.' Izarra recognises that 'not all diasporas translate a homing instinct with a wish to return to reform the "country of origin". Certainly Bulfin lived in South America for seventeen years and was committed to the long-term Irish community in Argentina; yet he continued to condemn emigration from Ireland.'
