As the author of The Shadow of a Gunman, The Plough and the Stars, and Juno and the Paycock, Sean O'Casey is one of the most significant Irish playwrights of the 20th century. He was deeply concerned with Irish politics, and many of his works reflect political themes. His plays were at the center of criticism and controversy, and his supporters included Joyce, Yeats, and Beckett. This reference book provides a brief overview of his career, concise plot summaries for his plays, production credits for major performances of his works, and an extensive annotated bibliography of primary and secondary sources, including reviews.
