about this item

Scholars of literature, drama, and film locate the crisis of masculinity within Irish contexts, filling a gap in critical discourses surrounding cinematic, theatrical, and literary depictions of Irish masculinity. They show how representations of masculinity and maleness have addressed, explored, and discussed images of men predominately in states of anxiety, crisis, and chaos. The topics include men making a show: depictions of men in contemporary Irish monologues, the transformation of masculine identity through crisis in Frank McGuinness' Someone Who'll Watch Over Me, the influence of cinematic representation on masculine identities and violence in Northern Ireland, "still a respected man:" Irish masculinity in crisis and crime fiction, and ordinary men in an abnormal society: men and masculinity in David Park's fiction.
