Abstract

ABSTRACT:

Although critics have cited the influence of J. M. Synge's work on that of Eugene O'Neill and Djuna Barnes, his early one-act plays also influenced another Provincetown Player, Susan Glaspell. This article discusses the ways that Synge's diction, imagery, rhythms, pauses, and silences, as well as his poetic use of language in his plays In the Shadow of the Glen and Riders to the Sea are echoed in Glaspell's Trifles and The Outside.
