ESSAY

Abstract: This article examines Celia de Fréine’s re-imagining of Brian Merriman’s canonic text The Midnight Court/Cúirt an Mheán Oíche. Through textual and contextual analysis of specific extracts of the texts, the article illustrates how de Fréine’s version challenges audiences to consider their participation in the social conditions of contemporary marriage, relationships and sexual practices for young women in contemporary Ireland. To this end she draws on Kevin Myers’ “Mother of Bastards” article to highlight the misogyny experienced by unmarried mothers in Ireland.
