J.M. Synge, born in Rathfarnham, outside Dublin, Ireland, is the most highly esteemed playwright of the Irish literary renaissance of the early 20th century. Although he died just short of his 38th birthday and produced a modest number of works, his writings have made an impact on audiences, writers, and Irish was the youngest of five children in an upper-class.

Product Description. Daniel Corkery's guide to the writing and plays of JM Synge, including commentary and criticism on the 6 main plays - Playboy of the western world, The well of saints, The Tinkers Wedding, Riders to the Sea, The Shadow of the Glen and Deirdre of tHe sorrows, as well as Synge's translations, essays and poetry.

(The Irish Literary Renaissance was a movement that sought to create a new literature out of the heritage, language, and folklore of the Irish people.)Yeats urged Synge to return to Ireland and to write about the peasants of the three small islands off the country’s western coast, known collectively as the Aran Islands or, simply, Aran.
