Abstract
  • IE TCD MS 4408: Literary commonplace book.This is a working notebook, previously numbered 45, which John Millington Synge first used on his last visit to Kerry in October 1907. It contains the material for the final part of 'In West Kerry' (fols 1v-1r). Synge used it again in September 1908 for drafts of several poems and translations: 'In Kerry' (fols 18v- 19r, 20r); 'A Question' (fols 19v-20v); 'Winter' (fols 20v-21r, 26v-27r); 'I've Thirty Months' (fol 26r); translations from Villon (fols 2lv-23v), Leopardi (fols 24v-25v) and Colin Musset (fols 27v-29v). At the back Synge also noted the words of a ballad heard on Bray Head, and some words and phrases.
