A cultural history of the Irish novel, 1790-1829 by Claire Connolly( Book )
15 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 285 libraries worldwide
"Claire Connolly offers a cultural history of the Irish novel in the period between the radical decade of the 1790s and the gaining of Catholic Emancipation in 1829. These decades saw the emergence of a group of talented Irish writers who developed and advanced such innovative forms as the national tale and the historical novel: fictions that took Ireland as their topic and setting and which often imagined its history via domestic plots that addressed wider issues of dispossession and inheritance. Their openness to contemporary politics, as well as to recent historiography, antiquarian scholarship, poetry, song, plays and memoirs, produced a series of notable fictions; marked most of all by their ability to fashion from these resources a new vocabulary of cultural identity. This book extends and enriches the current understanding of Irish Romanticism, blending sympathetic textual analysis of the fiction with careful historical contextualization"--

"Handsome Harry Ormond has been brought up, with a mixture of indulgence and neglect, by corrupt Anglo-Irish politician Sir Ulick O'Shane." "When his hot temper involves him in a near-fatal shooting, Harry is sent into the care of Sir Ulick's eccentric cousin, King Corny. Forced to reflect on his situation as a young man with neither property nor fortune, Harry resolves in future to be what he admires and 'shine forth an Irish Tom Jones'. His ensuing adventures take him from rural Ireland to fashionable Parisian society, where his good intentions in the areas of books, love and money are thoroughly tested."--BOOK JACKET
The wild Irish girl : a national tale by Morgan( Book )
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 97 libraries worldwide
"When Horatio, the son of an English lord, is banished to his father's Irish estate as punishment for his dissipated ways, he goes off in search of adventure. On the wild west coast of Connaught he finds remnants of a romantic Gaelic past--a dilapidated castle, a Catholic priest, a deposed king, and the king's lovely daughter, Glorvina. In this setting and among these characters Horatio learns the history, culture, and language of a country he had once scorned, but he must do so in disguise, for his own Enlgish ancestors are responsible for the ruin of the Gaelic family he comes to love." -- back cover
