Soulmate of James Joyce, J. M. Synge (1871-1909) is famous as the author of Playboy of the Western World, which provoked riots at its Dublin premiere in 1907. But the man himself, his peculiar religious background, and little-investigated death, have, until now, remained in the shadows. W. J. McCormack here recreates the complex religious and social environment in which Synge refined his talents as a writer. Placing Synge's life firmly in the context of the cultural revolution unfolding in Europe, this fresh and lively account will stand as the authoritative biography of this great writer.
About the Author:
W. J. Mc Cormack is Professor of Literary History in Goldsmith's College, the University of London, and editor of Irish Poetry: An Interpretive Anthology from Before Swift to Yeats and After (also available from New York University Press).
