Deconstructing History and Heroism : The Theatre Languages of O'Casey, Friel and Davis, Frances Devlin-Glass , 1996 single work criticism
Compares plays by Irish playwrights Sean O'Casey and Brian Friel with works by Aboriginal writer Jack Davis. Argues that what these plays have ideologically in common is a concern with dispossesson and materialist socialist analyses of that dispossession; a gendered and culturally critical account of heroism; a sense that language alone does not carry all the meanings of the culture; and a refusal to see the facts of oppression as the matter of tragedy.
(p. 113-123)
