dc.description.abstractEmploying the perspective of cultural trauma studies, this thesis explores the rich cultural memory of food’s association with power that has surfaced in many works of the Irish Canon—including W. B. Yeats, James Joyce, Samuel Beckett, and Edna O’Brien—and has been inherited and forwarded by Martin McDonagh’s The Beauty Queen of Leenane and The Cripple of Inishmaan. This is achieved by looking through the lens of gender, which further clarifies and magnifies this association. In doing so, this thesis will fill a hungry gap in scholarship that ought to acknowledge a truth important enough to be traceable and enduring for centuries: in Ireland, food equals power.
