Sample text

BOYLE: An', as it blowed an' blowed, I often looked up at the sky an' assed meselfthe question- what is the stars, what is the stars? JOXER: The formal plot is rooted in the continuous fount of words and endless, bibulous rhetoric. The Boyle family lives in a Dublin tenement during the Troubles. The work-shy 'Captain' and 'dryland sailor' - self-spoken 'procrastinator an' prognosticator' spends his days idling with his crony, the fawning, foxy, 'shouldershruggin', mendaciousJoxer, usually tucked up in one of Dublin's 'snugs', or tap-room sheltered retreats (the city's equivalent of Synge's country shebeens).

Allegorical assumptions are couched in simplistic, sardonic dialogue, calculated to enlighten as well as entertain. As a political cartoon, some of the topicality has blunted, though factional comment, such as 'its nothin' now, but a nest o' jobbery', still rings true to be considered a ferocious target in much later satires, as in Cock-a-Doodle Dandy and Time to Go. Like most representations of political groupings, the spokesmencharacters are badly informed, yet convinced that only their viewpoint counts.

Juno and the Paycock 47 And, apart from Juno herself, martyr-figure of Ireland's sufferings, the play's cast offers superb opportunities for all-round golden performances. The characters are neither heroes nor villains, but some magical mix of both. Like those in The Shadow rif a Gunman, they are of the same hardihood as American Westerners (tough of fibre and filled with the vigorous juice of life) whom they indigenously resemble. ' as his butty and drinking companion, 'Joxer' Daly, one of the residents in his tenement, alludes to him in one of his more ungracious and sardonically malicious moments.
