Overview

Tragedy and Irish Literature: Synge, O'Casey, Beckett by Ronan McDonald

In Tragedy and Irish Writing, McDonald considers the culture of suffering, loss, and guilt in the work of Synge, O'Casey, and Beckett. He applies ideas of tragedy to the three dramatists and also discerns particular sorts of tragedy within their own work. While alert to the real differences among the three, the book also traces common themes and preoccupations. It identifies a conflict between form and content, between heightened language and debased reality, as the hallmark of Irish tragedy.
