...dramatist, actor, director, and critic. His first play, The Clancy Name ( 1908 ), was staged at the Abbey Theatre , Dublin, of which he was still a director at his death. In his early plays— The Cross Roads ( 1909 ), Harvest ( 1910 ), Patriots ( 1912 ), The Dreamers ( 1913 )—he treated political and patriotic themes as matter for tragedy, with no weakening into sentiment; but his comedy The White-Headed Boy ( 1916 ; London, 1920 ; NY, 1934 ) first made him known outside his own country. Like Crabbed Youth and Age ( 1922 ; NY, 1932 ), it...

...Certainly the effect is quieter and more philosophical; but without the extra space afforded by the long line, his expression is even more crabbed and obscure. He is as convinced of his own philosophical interpretation of Ulysses' fate as he was of Achilles', but he now feels free to abandon the Greek entirely to make his point. As he traces the journey of this ‘absolute man’ through ‘many afflictions’, he loudly praises in the glosses his ‘continued pietie … through all places, times and occasions’, and enthusiastically blackens his hero's enemies,...

...happens to have with him; the second and third, superior in every way as rhetoric or philosophy, are improvised by Socrates on the spot. The speech attributed to Lysias is in a crabbed and pedantic style, lacking an introduction, developing its argument in an obsessively concentrated form (230e–234c). It is quite unlike the surviving speeches (twenty-three complete, twelve incomplete) of the historical Lysias, which ancient and modern critics have singled out as showing clarity in the proem, conciseness in the narrative, and above all charis or gracefulness...

To attend one of these meetings is to enter a world in which people are not busy: they are ‘fully occupied operationally’.
