dc.description.abstractThe project is comprised of three papers, each covering a different subject, but still staying under the umbrella topic of the effects of Irish folk literature and myth on Irish playwrights. A short biography of Standish O’Grady, the father of the Irish Literary Renaissance, starts off the project. Next is a comparison/contrast of J.M. Synge’s and W.B. Yeats’ treatments of the “Deirdre” myth in their respective “Deirdre” plays. Finally, an analysis of the mother goddess influence on Sean O’Casey’s “Juno and the Paycock” concludes the overall project. By covering three separate topics, the thesis has a more in-depth, expansive basis.en_US
