This is Lady Gregory's masterpiece. In order to appreciate it, one needs some context: in Irish mythology, Dierdre (the submissive, pure, suicidal woman) is revered and Grania (the rebellious, sensual, life-claiming woman) is denigrated. Lady Gregory turns this on its head and celebrates Grania's fierce rage when the two men she loves prove to care more about each other than about her. The poetry of this play brings tears of reverence to my eyes. I always wanted to direct it onstage but never got around to it because I didn't have students who could do justice to the music of the Irish-English text. ( )
