Reviews

"Gonzalez has collected 14 new essays addressing John Millington Synge's plays....Several essays recall riots resulting from performaces of his plays, and others remind readers of Syng'e attackes on patriarchalism, on myths about Irish womanhood, and on supersitions arising from institutional religion....Althought this volume offers some new ideas, most important is its reconfirmation of Synge's importance in both the Anglo-Irish and the world literary canons....All academic collections."-Choice
"Among its other strengths, this book also offers reasonably balanced coverage of Synge's playwriting career...specialists and generalists alike will benefit from the discussions of lesser-known texts. In short, this book deserves a place in college libraries and in the personal collection of scholars of Irish drama in general."-New England Theatre Journal
