I Remember J. M. Synge

  • James Stephens


It was not until late in his rather short life that Synge discovered his true ability to lie neither in philosophy nor music but in drama, and one may wonder how he came to make this discovery, for he was a painfully slow writer, and his very slowness might have led him to distrust an art-form that was so difficult to handle. To the end writing was a toil to him.
