  • Riders to the Sea - a Poetic Play

    Yeats, Eliot and Synge, who had achieved a revival of the poetic drama in the 20th century, had been reacting against the contemporary Prose play of Ideas popularized by Ibsen. These dramatists felt that the prose play emphasized mainly on urban life and its contemporary problems. Realizing that urban life had become superficially sophisticated but devitalized, they attempted to highlight in their plays those forms of existence that were beyond the premises of modern society, still possessing spontaneity...

    Riders to the Sea by the Irish playwright J.M Synge is a one act drama, which in essence is a tragedy, yet an unusual one. Unlike in traditional tragedies, the hero(ine) of the play does not put up (or even stand) a fighting chance, but undergoes a character transformation, which is more tragic than the demise of a hero. Maurya, the main character, is an old woman. Yet, most importantly, she is a mother; a mother of six sons who had all perished in the sea. She had had a difficult time bringing...
