Note This text uses JM Synge's plays, prose, and photography to explore the cultural life of Edwardian Ireland. By emphasizing less familiar contexts, including the rise of a local celebrity culture, the arts and crafts movement, and Irish classical music, it shows how Irish folk culture intersected with the new networks of mass communication
