It was a time when W. B. Yeats had reached the apex of his celebrity, the impact of Joyce’s Ulysses was beginning to be felt and the Abbey Theatre was still at the height of its national importance. Politically the Treaty of Independence was less than a decade past, 1916 was a living memory for those of middle age and over, and the Republic under de Valera was a reality.
