Loria, Vol. 11 : Fall 1934 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Loria, Vol. 11: Fall 1934 In Deirdre of the Sorrows, literature is again left with another masterly fragment, a riddle of what might have been. This play, based on an early Irish tragedy, was begun when Synge was bewildered and despondent. All the time he had been writing plays, he suffered from ill health, and now his disease grew worse. His strength did not last long enough for him to finish the last play. It was a bitter disappointment to him, but he was to suffer an even greater one. All his life he had loved the Wicklow hills and everything in them. Out there in the open he had seen the things which were to ﬂash upon that inward eye which is the bliss of solitude. Out there he had delighted in the violence of life, and his warm heart grew from an understanding of nature to an understand ing of her people. His request was that he could look out the window to the hills in the distance. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
