About This Item

London: Macmillan and Co, 1928. 1st. h/b. Good, 1st edition, missing d/j, green boards good, rubbing on title plates on cover & spine (latter also slightly stained); slight forward lean; text block otherwise firm; untrimmed pages unmarked if slighly tanned. . 12mo (190 x 130 / 7_"" x 5""). Ireland, World War One. Dashing Harry Heegan leads his football team to victory, arriving home in swaggering celebration before he grabs his kit and heads for the trenches. A nightmare world awaits, the men, reduced to cannon fodder, speaking in mangled incantations as the casualties stack up. Months later, Harry returns, a cripple at the football club party. Everyone but the shattered war veterans dance and forget. Peppered with acrid wit and dark vaudeville humour, The Silver Tassie, Sean O'Casey's powerful anti-war play of 1928.
