Brian Friel, Seamus Deane

With the production of Philadelphia, Here I Come! in 1964, Brian Friel established his claim to be the true heir of such distinguished predecessors as Yeats, Synge, O'Casey and Beckett. Since then his work has consistently demonstrated that his strength is an equal awareness of the conditions of individual lives and the historical and political forces affecting them.Faith Healer ‘The writing is beautiful, supple, rhythmical, charged with the slow, sure throb of despair and enchantment.Brian Friel is the most profound and poetic of contemporary Irish dramatist.’ ObserverTranslations ‘A modern classic. It engages the intellect as well as the heart, and achieves a profound political and philosophical resonance through the detailed examination of individual lives.’ Daily TelegraphThe other plays included in this volume are: The Freedom of the City, Living Quarters, and Aristocrats.
