Jan C
A critical biography of the Anglo-Irish playwright. One of the leading lights of the Irish Literary Theater (the Abbey Players) along with Lady Gregory and W.B. Yeats.

I didn't know much about him, other than he was author of The Playboy of the Western World. Apparently when this play was introduced, it caused riots in the streets.

This books winds up being a combination of biography of Synge, critique of his works and the early history of the Irish Literary Theater.
