A visão do sobrenatural nas peças de Connor McPherson
Keywords in Portuguese
Contar histórias

Sobrenatural
Teatro irlandês

Abstract in Portuguese
A presente dissertação examina os diferentes elementos do sobrenatural encontrados em três peças do dramaturgo irlandês Conor McPherson: St Nicholas (1997), The Weir (1997) e The Seafarer (2006). Observa-se que o uso do sobrenatural é recorrente em sua obra, embora ele empregue elementos diferentes em cada uma das peças com o objetivo de retratar as angústias e os problemas existenciais do homem contemporâneo. St Nicholas é uma paródia das histórias de vampiros, em The Weir o autor recorre à tradição oral irlandesa do contador de histórias e em The Seafarer re-escreve a lenda de Fausto.

Abstract in English
The present dissertation examines different elements of the supernatural found in three plays by the Irish playwright Conor McPherson: St Nicholas (1997), The Weir (1997) and The Seafarer (2006). The supernatural is a recurrent feature in McPhersons work, although he makes use of different elements in each of his plays with the aim of depicting the anxieties and existential problems of contemporary man. St Nicholas is a parody of vampire stories; in The Weir the author resorts to the Irish oral tradition of storytelling; and in The Seafarer he rewrites Fausts legend.
