The Aran Islands

Read The Aran Islands The Aran Islands Download Õ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook F the west of Ireland is stillso; it is Ireland raised to the power of two Towards the end of the last century Irish nationalists came to identify the area as the country's uncorrupted heart the repository of its ancient language culture and spiritual values It was for these reasons that Yeats suggested Synge visit the islands to record their way of life The result is a passionate exploration of a triangle of contradictory relationships between an island community still embedded in its ancestral ways but solicited by modernism a physical environment of ascetic lovelines. A long third of this classic book are explanatory pages Contain easy to read and wonderfully useful historical background people and cultural background and explanation why this book was controversial with Ulster populations and some South of the border republicans when published Maybe Synge would not have liked any explanatory notes but I found them very useful and in some cases gave information new to me This book as a whole enriches my experience of visiting the Aran Islands some years ago

Read The Aran Islands The Aran Islands Download Õ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook The foremost account of Ireland's cultural and spiritual heritage In 1907 J M Synge achieved both notoriety and lasting fame with The Playboy of the Western World The Aran Islands published in the same year records his visits to the islands in 1898 1901 when he was gathering the folklore and anecdotes out of which he forged The Playboy and his other major dramas Yet this book is muchthan a stage in the evolution of Synge the dramatist As Tim Robinson explains in his introduction If Ireland is intriguing as being an island off the west of Europe then Aran as an island of. John Millington Synge was well ualified to write a book about the customs and folklore of the people who inhabited the wild and windswept Aran Islands situated off the west coast of Ireland After suffering a bout of severe illness from Hodgkin s disease which was to cause his early death in 1909 he went to the Aran Islands in 1898 and spent five summers collecting stories folklore and perfecting his Gaelic The Aran s were still a stronghold for the rich native Irish Gaelic language In time he was accepted by the people and gained their confidence although always remaining a Duine Uasal a noble person Synge was born of landed gentry and this was a divide that could never be bridged between the impoverished islanders and their wealthy well educated guest He was treated with the greatest of respect but could never be one of them He had the handy knack of playing a mean fiddle which made him a popular figure with the islanders He was also familiar with conjuring tricks and could perform feats of athleticism which helped pass the boredom with these simple peasant folkThe book was first completed in 1901 but was not published until 1907 Synge considered it as my first serious piece of work In the book Synge describes in some detail the harsh lives of these islanders and recounts the stories often imbued with deep superstitions that they told over the turf fires Amongst the Aran s population were many gifted oral storytellers They were the last in a long history of passed down oral traditions that had its origins in the likes of Homer and even further back into the earlier mists of mans origins The Gaelic storytelling over the turf fire is not so far removed from the hunter gatherers who spun tales over the campfire Synge brings all these people to life and paints a vivid picture of their austere lives Death was not an unusual occurrence in the dangerous seas around the islands and Synge paints a vivid picture of the funeral of one such victim Synge caught the people at a time when they were just becoming aware of the value of their Gaelic language and the possibilities it held for tourism He describes everyday tasks like the burning of the kelp and the frenetic loading and unloading of livestock off of the boats It is a life that has now vanished Synge would still recognise the rugged geography of the islanders but the people would be strangers to him Time has moved on But he has left us an important little picture of the daily battle for existence on the beautiful but often inhospitable Aran IslandsI would also thoroughly recommend the wonderful little book Twenty Years a Growin written by Maurice O Sullivan a native islander of the Blasket Islands off the Dingle peninsular He was a native of the islands and as such his work has a beautiful and natural Gaelic flow to it If anything it is an even greater work than Synge s Another fine read is Robin Flower s The Western Island which recounts the author s experiences living amongst the inhabitants of the Blasket s Also worth watching is Robert Flaherty s fine documentary Man of Aran This gives a fine account of the islander s life although not strictly historically accurate If you happen to visit the Aran Islands it is worth visiting the cottage on Inishmaan that Synge stayed in which is open to visitors I wish you happy reading
