McGahern faced quite a bit of criticism for his affinity to the traditional rural culture that comes across vividly in his novels ‘That They May Face the Rising Sun’ and ‘Amongst Women’ (Garratt). McGahern captures the eternal conflict between urban and rural life. Without making any explicit comments he juxtaposes the two antagonistic concepts that dictate the life of his characters and put them under inherent dilemma about their state of being. The two novels are similar in their themes but different in treatment, narration and philosophy.
