and she holding him from the sea’

‘There all gone now, and there isn’t
anything more the sea can do to me’

Maurya Vs. the sea.

The rider Bartley who must ride through
the sea to sell the horses as a way for living

Maruya who becomes sea’s direct antagonist
by trying to prevent Bartley from going.

The Method of Islamic Art
Considers the Irish
playwright John Synge's 
Riders to the Sea as
 paradigmatic of the pious
aesthetic principles
because it matches the
Islamic view of art.

Synge wrote plays about character
where originals in life talked poetically,
so that he could make them talk poetry
and remain real people.
