To the Editors of the CRIMSON:

I should like to call attention to the performances of Irish plays by the Irish players at the Plymouth Theatre, Boston. The charm and power of the plays, and the excellence of the acting, give evidence of an artistic reawakening by Ireland which may again bring that country into prominence as an important factor in the civilized world.

In these plays, by Synge, William Butler Yeats, and Lady Gregory, there is a modern survival of the delicacy of feeling coupled with masculinity, the ardent love for nature, and the wit and humor which lent distinction to Celtic among ancient literatures. To obtain an idea of Ireland today, of her problems and aspirations (of which most of us in this country have but little knowledge) one can scarcely do better than see the Irish Players. N. J. O'CONOR 2G.
