When they first met in Paris in 1896, in an encounter that would become a foundation myth of the Irish Literary Revival, WB Yeats was 31 and JM Synge was 25. Later, Yeats would chronicle what happened, suggesting that it was his advice in that meeting that led to the making of Synge as a playwright and an artist. Yeats wrote: "He told me that he had been living in France and Germany, reading French and German literature, and that he wished to become a writer. He had, however, nothing to show but one or two poems and impressionistic essays ... Life had cast no light upon his writings. He had learned Irish years ago, but had begun to forget it ... I said 'Give up Paris. You will never create anything by reading Racine, and Arthur Symons will always be a better critic of French literature. Go to the Aran Islands. Live there as if you were one of the people themselves; express a life that has never found expression.'"
