Read full description of the books:
This revised and expanded Norton Critical Edition is the ideal focal point for the study of Irish literature and culture and, because of its many important twentieth-century works, for the study of drama more generally. This volume includes the complete texts of fourteen plays by the leading Irish playwrights: W. B. Yeats, Lady Gregory, J. M. Synge, Bernard Shaw, Sean O'Casey, Samuel Beckett, Brian Friel, Conor McPherson, and Marina Carr. The plays are accompanied by John P. Harrington's introduction and by his detailed explanatory annotations.
For ease of reference, "Backgrounds and Criticism" is chronologically organized by playwright and includes prefaces, letters, journal entries, program notes, and interpretive essays for each play in the volume. In addition, essays by Lady Gregory, John Eglinton, W. B. Yeats, Frank J. Fay, and Colm Tóibín provide an overview of the Irish dramatic literary revival. Finally, the present and future state of theater in Ireland is considered in essays by Victor Merriman, Mary Trotter, Lionel Pilkington, and Joan Fitz-Patrick Dean.
A Chronology and Selected Bibliography are also included.
Each Norton Critical Edition includes an authoritative text, contextual and source materials, and a wide range of interpretations-from contemporary perspectives to the most current critical theory-as well as a bibliography and, in many cases, a chronology of the author's life and work.
