About this Item

Introduction by Howad K. Slaughter. Contents: The Ointment Blue or The King of the Barna Men / The Pie-Dish / The Terrible Baisht / There are Tragedies and Tragedies / The Moonligher / First productions of he plays. The reviewer of The Times Literary Supplement says of Fitzmaurice: "he was one of the very few dramatists.who put the oral tradition on the stage without benefit of any external theatrical model. In his best work there is no trace of what Joyce called the "cultic twalette". His work is a direct product of Kerry legend, speech, and ordinary life, translated into a fantastic world of his own where cottagers, mountebank doctors, priests and creatures of folklore can meet on the same plane. At the lowest estimate, he was the best writer of Kerry dialect Ireland ever had." Size: 5" x 7 1/2" Tall. Bookseller Inventory # 023326
