Summary This traditional Irish folk drama offers lively characters and musical speech. The satiric theme--that sometimes it is better to preserve one's illusions than to face reality--is expressed through the episode of Martin and Mary Doul's miraculously resotred sight. But more engaging than the play's "moral" are its characters. The poor, simple, superstitious folk that inhabit Synge's Irish countryside have a zest for life and a racy genius for language. Through them, Syge expresses a sense of life's comedy, richness, and pathos.
