J.M. Synge

Nature, Politics, Modernism

Seán Hewitt

  • A full study of all of Synge's dramatic and prose works
  • Discusses a significant amount of archival material, paratexts, and Synge's reading, much of which is previously-undiscussed in scholarship
  • Studies Synge's work in the light of many typically-modernist discourses: occultism, modernisation; socialism; degeneration and eugenics
