Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Playwright John M. Synge visited an isolated group of islands west of Ireland, where he drew inspiration from local folklore and anecdotes. This memorable record of Synge's days amid the islanders and their tales of fairies and Celtic heroes offers an enchanting portrait of Irish cultural renaissance.

Synopsis:

Famed playwright's beautiful, poetic 1907 memoir of life in an Irish fishing community. Superb retelling of folklore and anecdotes; vivid portrait of warmth, sincerity, and humor of hardy island residents.
