Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Though he completed only five plays in his short lifetime, J. M. Synge, co-founder of the Abbey Theater, ranks as one of Ireland’s greatest playwrights. Rescuing the Irish peasant from a romanticized stereotype, his plays capture the essence of the Irish spirit in both his realistic characters and his unique language. In the Shadow of the Glen Synge’s first play (1903), based on an Irish folktale, combines the macabre with broad comedy, as an elderly husband fakes his death to test his discontented young wife’s fidelity. Rider to the Sea The greatest short tragedy in modern drama, this moving one-act play from 1904 depicts a peasant woman who has lost her husband and sons, one by one, to the raging sea. The Playboy of the Western World Synge’s satirical masterpiece, produced in 1907, is one of the great comedies of Irish life. A young stranger enraptures villagers with claims of killing his father. In classic Synge style it combines the real versus the fanciful, the traditional versus the individual.

Download or read book The Playboy of the Western World and Other Plays written by J. M. Synge and published by . This book was released on 2019-12-20 with total page 172 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: J. M. Synge, an Irish poet, playwright, and prose writer, was also one of the cofounders of the storied Abbey Theatre. Synge was known as a strange and enigmatic man, quiet and reserved, not even understood by his own family members. After graduating from school, Synge decided to pursue music, but his shy nature prevented him from performing, causing him to turn to literature as a creative outlet. When it opened at the Abbey Theatre in 1907, his most acclaimed play, "The Playboy of the Western World", met with rioting and chaos, as it garnered a very hostile reaction from the Irish public. Arthur Griffith, an Irish nationalist, described the play as "a vile and inhuman story told in the foulest language we have ever listened to from a public platform." Synge who suffered from Hodgkin's disease, and died shortly before his 38th birthday, is best remembered for his dramatic works. His complete plays are collected together here in this volume. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The most famous and infamous play by Ireland's best loved (and hated) playwright The Playboy of the Western World, offended audiences when first produced in 1907, on account of its 'immodest' references to Irish womanhood and aroused a prolonged and bitter controversy, which lasted until the author's death in 1909. In the play Christy Mahon stumbles into the Flaherty's tavern claiming to have killed his father. He is praised for his boldness, and he and the barmaid Pegeen fall in love to the dismay of her betrothed, Shawn. The Widow Quin tries to seduce him to no avail, but eventually his father, who was only wounded, tracks Christy to the tavern, and Christy attacks him again. Old Mahon falls, and the townsfold, afraid of being implicated, bind Christy, but he is freed when his father crawls inside. Christy leaves to wander the world with a newfound confidence, and Pegeen laments betraying and losing him.

Synge Set in a cottage on the North-West coast of Ireland during the early 1900s the play tells the story of Christy Mahon, a young man supposedly running away having killed his father. Following Christy's arrival at the cottage the locals are more interested in vicariously enjoying his story than in condemning his morality. When The Playboy first opened in Dublin it was the cause of riots as Catholic protesters voiced their objections to the portrayal of rural Irish Catholic morality.
