Synge in the early days of the Irish Literary Theatre which would later become the Abbey Theatre introduced their audience to scenarios and characters form Irish myth and legend. However, when looked at closely these plays have as much to do with the present as with the past. Yeats's focus on Cuchulain, for instance, in a play such as 'On Baile's Strand' allows him to question the nature of the hero in the modern world.
But it is important to stress that these writers were not mesmerized by the past.
They did not believe that it was possible to fully recover the past or to ignore the movement of history and resurrect a Gaelic society with a Gaelic language in the present.
