This speculative new reading of Neil Jordan’s The Company of Wolves focuses on how the film deviates from Angela Carter’s original short story. Concentrating in particular on the director’s representation of the heroine, Rosaleen, and on his use of the extended dream sequence, it identifies the traces in Jordan’s film of specifically Irish literary tropes and genres. In so doing, The Company of Wolves is situated against the backdrop of the Troubles in Northern Ireland, bringing it closer in line with the films in Jordan’s oeuvre that take Ireland’s troubled social and political history as their explicit subject.
