“I have often envied him his absorption”

Once again, the Guardian Review section has another wonderful article.. this time Colm Tóibín on the Genius of John Millington Synge – to coincide with the publication by Carysfort Press of Synge: A Celebration edited by Tóibín, out on Monday.. wish they had an easier ordering system though.. The Druid Theatre Company are performing the Synge Plays in Galway and elsewhere. You can read Maire Nic Shiubhlaigh’s eye-witness account of the Playboy Riots, and more, in this great Synge birthday post at The Sheila Variations
