Brian Friel

a mathematics teacher who worked in Derry, Northern Ireland

(Born 9 January 1929 – Knockmoyle, Omagh, County Tyrone, Northern Ireland – Died 2 October 2015, Greencastle, County Donegal, Ireland, aged 86)

“It is not the literal past, the ‘facts’ of history, that shape us, but images of the past embodied in language” /  “But remember that words are signals, counters. They are not immortal. And it can happen – to use an image you’ll understand – it can happen that a civilisation can be imprisoned in a linguistic contour which no longer matches the landscape of… fact.” 

Translations (23 September 1980) Field Day Theatre Company (performed Londonderry/Derry, Hampstead, the National and New York)
