Abstract:

This study provides a European perspective on the drama of Yeats and of the Irish playwrights - Wilde and Synge, O'Casey and Beckett - who share in the achievement of creating a modern 'drama of the interior'. Professor Worth traces in particular the influence of Maeterlinck, examining his 'static drama' in some detail. A dominant theme is the importance of total theatre techniques to the playwrights of the interior from Wilde in Salomé to O'Casey in plays like Cock-a-Doodle Dandy . Yeats is seen as the great pioneer, assimilating inspiration from the French, with Arthur Symons as guide, from.
