As a collection of Modern Irish plays this is pretty good (although I will never understand why Yeats dabbled in drama...why, why, why?) and the articles provide interesting context. The footnotes are not very good, though - if you know anything about Irish history they are a waste of ink, and they don't tell you anything but the most basic information on any other topics. Usually Norton editions very good footnotes, so it's weird that these are so minimal.
