Contents:
Introduction: bodies and blood -- Body and soul: Yeats, the Famine, and the two Cathleens -- Under siege: blood, borders, and the body politic -- Excess of love: Padraig Pearse and the erotics of sacrifice -- The body of truth: sensationalism and sacrifice in Sean O'Casey's Dublin trilogy -- Misbirth of a nation: Yeats and the Irish Free State.
Summary: Gender and Modern Irish Drama argues that the representations of sacrificial violence central to the work of the Abbey playwrights are intimately linked with constructions of gender and sexuality. Susan Cannon Harris goes beyond an examination of the relationship between Irish national drama and Irish nationalist politics to the larger question of the way national identity and gender identity are constructed through each other. Radically redefining the context in which the Abbey plays were performed, Harr.
