Another shared feature is the conviction that the Famine was divine in origin, though the sin that precipitated such retribution is variously identified. The next essay, by Scott Boltwood, addresses the leading dramatist of the 1840s to the 1880s, Dion Boucicault, transatlantically successful and living a diasporic, mobile existence that seems almost paradigmatic of the Famine generation. Boucicault wrote scores of plays, but Boltwood focuses on his Irish-themed work, especially the dramas in which Boucicault sought to speak for the peasantry with which he had little contact, having left Ireland as a child, and the later plays in which Boucicault’s Fenian sympathies are a significant factor.
