The Binding Project

“The Binding examines the wider psychological and cultural impact of this lost

body of fatherhood. Using her own son as a model, Dixie makes reference to

key texts of Western culture which illustrate how the invisibility of paternity

is, in fact, key to the establishment of patriarchal masculinities – an absence

which is resolved through the actual or symbolic sacrifice of the son. “(Deborah

Seddon, Paternity and Intertextuality in Christine Dixie’s The Binding, 2015)
