LAP Lambert Academic Publishing In dramatizing the conditions of Irish society Brian Friel is keenly aware of the close relations among language, discourse, myth, politics and history. He is mostly concerned with the colonial and post-colonial contexts in which language and cultural clashes are dominant factors. The writers offer an analysis of his drama in terms of the significance of forms of capital in them. Friel’s theatre in its social dimension is one of societal transformations, of transitions. What is the modality of cultural changes at such moments of transition? This book is an attempt to provide a sort of answer to this question by adopting cultural studies as its general theoretical framework with a particular focus on Pierre Bourdieu’s theorization of culture.
