About the Author

John Millington Synge (1871—1909) was a poetic dramatist of great power and a leading figure in the Irish literary renaissance. After studying at Trinity College and at the Royal Irish Academy of Music in Dublin, he pursued further studies from 1893 to 1897 in Germany, Italy, and France. His travels along the Irish west coast inspired his most famous play, The Playboy of the Western World.
