The Trinity of a new Age: Three struggling Women in Anne Devlin's "Ourselves Alone" (1986) and "After Easter" (1994)

Abstract

Throughout her plays, Anne Devlin gives us an insight into the forgotten world of women in Northern Ireland. Nevertheless, if the author was said to give a feminist viewpoint on the conflict, she personally asserted that when she writes "more is called up" (Foley 74). Indeed, if Anne Devlin first points out the little room women are offered in her male-dominated Province and the little power they have, she also rages against it. She devotes more energy to showing that the Troubles are about women fighting against men rather than Catholics against Protestants, Republicans against Loyalists, Nationalists struggling against Unionists and, above all, the IRA against the British army. Her conflict becomes one about genders mainly.
