Subject Highlights



Patrick McCabe’s Francie Brady is read against his precedent, in James Joyce’s Stephen Dedalus, to explore the deterministic factors in mid-twentieth century Irish history that lead to madness instead of artistry in fiction protagonists. Motifs of cultural paralysis, exile, endemic cultural violence and the influence of the Catholic Church are each examined in this essay.
