Riders to the sea book review

Satire on Irish romanticism conceals a parable of the poet's development and estrangement from his public. But Dublin nationalists heard only the people slandered, and Dublin prudery heard only the forbidden word "shifts" on Christy's lips. Playboy was the last play Synge saw staged.

Par Frank Kuznik03 mars The plays of John Millington Synge are filled with the humors, sorrows and dreams of the country folk of the Aran Islands and the western Irish coastlands, where, in Synge's words, 'we have a popular imagination that is fiery and magnificent and tender'.

The Playboy of the Western World, his most famous play, is sweetly funny and ironic as it follows its young hero's progress, in the eyes of others, from timid weakling to paragon of bravery. The shorter one-act play, Riders to the Sea, is a dark elegy to the fragile existence of those who live at the mercy of the sea.

Both are beautifully crafted dramas that celebrate Irish gifts for lyrical language. They are reprinted here from authoritative editions, complete with Synge's preface to The Playboy of the Western World. À l'intérieur du livre. Pages sélectionnées Page de titre.
