Abstract: John McGahern's literary canvas concentrates mainly on the north-western midlands of Ireland during the middle and latter half of the last century. Many of his characters, influenced by a rather puritanical brand of Catholicism, tend to view sexuality in a negative light and to see the body, especially the female body, as a source of sin. This article will discuss Catholic guilt in McGahern's unpublished first novel, "The End or the Beginning of Love", and the controversial second novel, The Dark, which was banned shortly after its publication in 1965, and show how accurately the mores and customs of Irish society of the time are reflected in these works
