Using the work of Rene Girard and Jacques Lacan, Mahon develops a new theoretical framework for reading the dynamic interplay of textuality, sexuality, violence, politics, reciprocity and the body in key literary and cinematic texts that engage with the period of political and social unrest in Northern Ireland known as the 'Troubles' (1968-1998).
