Sean O'Casey, an Irish poet and playwright, left Ireland and moved to England in 1926 because of the bad reception his plays encountered. His plays include The Plough and the stars (1926), The Shadow of a gunman (1923), and Juno and the paycock (1924); many deal realistically with Dublin slum life and the Irish struggle for independence. O'Casey also wrote a six-volume autobiography (1939-1954).

Sean O'Casey (1880-1964) was an Irish playwright and memoirist noted for his portrayal of the lives of Ireland's working class and poor. O'Casey was born in Dublin in 1880 and struggled in his early life with poverty and illness. He became involved in the Irish nationalist movement, was noted for his socialist and communist political beliefs, and was often critical of the Catholic Church. O'Casey's first significant success as a dramatist came with the acceptance and production of The Shadow of a Gunman by the Abbey Theatre in Dublin in 1923. The Abbey Theatre would produce several of his subsequent plays, including Juno and the Paycock, and The Plough and the Stars, which caused riots after being criticized as anti-Irish. In 1926, O'Casey went to London on what was intended to be a short visit, but decided to remain in England as a result of disputes with the Abbey Theatre and several figures in the Irish literary community. He continued to write and produced several other notable dramatic works, including Purple Dust, Red Roses for Me, Cock-A-Doodle Dandy, and The Bishop's Bonfire . O'Casey also produced an autobiography that was released in six individual volumes from 1939 to 1954. Sean O'Casey is regarded as one of the leading Irish playwrights of the 20th Century. (1)

David H. Greene (1913-2008), was a leading scholar of Irish literature and professor at New York University. Greene edited 1000 years of Irish Prose, An Anthology of Irish Literature, and co-edited The Matter with Ireland, a collection of writings from George Bernard Shaw. He also co-wrote the authorized biography of Irish dramatist John M. Synge, J.M. Synge, 1871-1909 . O'Casey and Greene met in the 1930s while Greene was a graduate student at Harvard University, and continued a friendship and correspondence until O'Casey's death in 1964. (2)
