Female Predicament in J. M. Synge’s Drama ‘In the Shadow of the Glen’

Dar, Hilal Ahmad


Female predicament has remained a hot debate since ages and a lot of writers have raised their voice against the said issue in their writings. Despite being equally involved in the development of a society a woman has always been at the receiving end. She has always suffered at the hands of man. She has always been ignored and has remained confined to the four walls of her house. In a male dominated society she has always been a mute spectator. But with the passage of time and evolution of feminist movements, the said issue has gained a lot of impetus. The article shows the wrongs to which women are subjected and will focus on the problems and psychological trauma faced by the women with special reference of J M Synge’s drama In the Shadow of the Glen. It aims to portray the problems and obstacles which the Irish women in general and the women living in the country Wicklow in particular came across. These women were imprisoned in a male dominated society unable to share their grief and agony.

Keywords: Wicklow, psychological, trauma, predicament, portray, agony.
