No. 218 in the 'Guild Twelve' series; "It is generally considered that the greatness of Synge lies in his illuminating interpretation of Irish life. He fashioned an imaginative and beautiful prose style (based on the Irish dialect) that is admirably suited to his purpose, and he presents, with unabashed realism, 'the rich joy found only in what is superb and wild in reality'; but there is tragedy too, the searing tragedy to be found, for instance, in the one act of The Riders to the Sea, a work that would have gained no greater significance had it been planned on a. larger scale. To English readers The Playboy is probably the most satisfying of Synge's plays, and, together with the lovely story of Deirdre, must be considered as his greatest achievement." page edges browned with age & light wear at spine ends Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. 219 pages. no Dust Jacket as published..
