With a foreword by Michael Cronin
Irish Drama in Poland is the first book to broadly assess Irish drama’s impact on both Poland’s theatrical world and its cultural and literary heritage in the twentieth century. With a wide-ranging analysis, from Yeats, Synge, O’Casey, and Behan, to Wilde, Shaw, and Beckett, this engaging study explores the translation, production, and reception of Irish plays in Poland. Barry Keane presents readers with the historical and literary context for each production, allowing readers to understand the many ways Irish theatre has informed Poland’s theatrical and literary heritage. With a foreword by Michael Cronin, Irish Drama in Poland allows readers a more informed understanding of European culture and identity.

Barry Keane is Associate Professor of Translation and Comparative studies at the University of Warsaw. He is the author of acclaimed works on Jan Kochanowski, Anna Stanisławska, and the Skamander Poets.
