Not I in an Irish context

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Citation (Scopus)


In Not I, Mouth tells the story of a woman who is socially neglected, religiously controlled, economically invisible, and legally powerless. In this paper, I examine the interconnections between Mouth's story and Irish controversies in recent years about the treatment of women. Additionally, I claim that Not I exemplifies the extent to which male writers can give voice effectively to women characters and their struggles.
