Eascar agus Fás: the Early Poetry of Máirtín Ó Direáin

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

Using post-structuralist and psychoanalytic literary theory (including Derrida, Lacan and Kristeva), this study explores Ó Direáin's early poetry as an expression of the desire for fixed subjecthood and a stable identity vis à vis the poet's growing realization that the 'self' is a 'de-centred' or split 'subject-in-process'. The analysis draws on Ó Direáin's prose writings, including Feamainn Bhealtaine ['Mayweed'].
