The Butcher Boy, Breakfast on Pluto and Winterwood
Edited by Jennifer Keating
A psychoanalytic reading of Patrick McCabe’s novel and screen adaptation of The Butcher Boy suggests that the degeneration of Francie’s family unit betrays the effects of cultural and political violence in Ireland’s history. A compromised relationship, particularly between Francie and his mother, demonstrates the fragility of his psyche leading to the horrific murder of Mrs. Nugent. The familial relationship is read in the context of traumatic societal strife in twentieth century Irish and wider post World War ii European contexts.
