Abstract

Legacies of globalization, colonialism and individual alienation are explored in the context of Patrick McCabe’s Mondo Desperado. Framed within the context of The Butcher Boy and Breakfast on Pluto, Mondo is explored as an example of modernity’s infringement on mythological notions of a pastoral Ireland. Colonial contexts, rising global economies and the absurdities therein are explored in this chapter.
