Sketches a new portrait of one of the most influential figures of the Irish Literary Renaissance.

"Synge’s sharp eye for detail and his ability to elicit personal anecdotes, his empathy and consideration for those he meets on his travels are intriguingly examined here by an author who shows great sympathy for her subject."—The Times Literary Supplement

"Stylish and probing, Bruna’s study is finely alert to Synge’s travel writings and to the popular and literary cultural contexts out of which they came. Itself highly original, it shows how Synge, in implicit dialogue with previous Irish wanderers and with the journalism of his day, created wholly new kinds of travel narrative. With this work, Bruna has not only taught us new ways of reading Synge but of decoding the entire Irish revival."—Declan Kiberd, author of The Irish Writer and the World

"Bruna expertly delineates the manner in which Synge’s travel writings about Ireland do not fit neatly into the dominant imperial or nationalist tenor of the texts produced by his contemporaries."—Mary M. Burke, author of "Tinkers": Synge and the Cultural History of the Irish Traveller
