A.E.'S Deirdre: Alegend in Three Acts

Auther : Ahmed El-Nadi

The research is about the legend of Deirdre that brings sorrow to every body about her. This legend has been treated by three different playwrights each in his own way. A.E.treated it as a legend in three acts; synge coverted it into a peasant play while Yeats stressed the mythical aspect in the legend. This paper is confined to A.E.’s handling of the legend. He deals with two prominent themes: the theme of exile and the conflict between private life and public life and public life or the Family and the State. Naisi and Deirdre have gone into exile to Scotland. Naisi cannot ignore his duty towards his motherland. So he convinces Deirdre to return to Ireland and have peace with the olding, Conchubor. The latter deceives them and kills Naisi with the result that Deirdre takes her own life and brings sorrow to conchubor and ruin to his kingdom.

The technique of A.E has been examined and it has been found out that A.E sacrificed the dramatic technique for the sake of the legend.
