More than 4 weeks availability
Compares three pairs of plays by the Irish playwright J.M. Synge and the Chinese playwright Cao Yu, discussing some provocative dramaturgical similarities as well as profound aesthetic differences and uncovering instances of Cao Yu's appropriation of Western literary models previously unrecognized.
A comparison of the absent antagonists in "Leiyu" and "Riders to the Sea"; a comparison of the spatial relations in "Yuanye" and "The Shadow of the Glen"; the sadness of unaccomplished Chuanshen in "Bejingren" and the joy of play in "The Playboy of the Western World"; a review of the dramatic work of Cao Yu and J.M. Synge.
