Comments on: "Brendan Behan Quotes: I was court-martialled in my absence, and sentenced to death in my absence,..."
My name is Behan, Brendan Behan, after Saint Brendan, who got into one of our little Irish boats called a curragh one day in the sixth century and sailed across the Atlantic and found America, and when he’d found it, like a sensible man he turned around and sailed back and left it where it fuckinwell was.

|Profession:||Novelist, Playwright, Poet, Screenwriter|
Brendan Behan was born in Dublin, Ireland. He was an Irish poet, short story writer, novelist, and playwright who wrote in both English and Irish. He was also an Irish republican and a volunteer in the Irish Republican Army. In 1954, Behan's first play The Quare Fellow was produced in Dublin. In 1958, Behan's play in the Irish language An Giall had its debut at Dublin's Damer Theatre. Later, The Hostage, Behan's English-language adaptation of An Giall, met with great success internationally. Behan's autobiographical novel, Borstal Boy, was published the same year and became a worldwide best-seller.
