They are all the young man searching for a new life in Ireland but too often encountering the darkness found in Moore and Joyce.
Review: Young John McGahern: Becoming a Novelist by Denis Sampson
At the close of his quartet, however, McGahern's central character finds his way back home. Like Gabriel, in "The Dead," who decides to "set out on his journey westward," McGahern's protagonist realizes life cannot be a series of continual leavetakings from his problems. His epiphany is to see that he has let the "light of imagination almost out. The dissertation, then, traces McGahern's refrain as he tells the story of that rural Irish family, and also places his novels within a literary and historical Irish context.
