The pioneers of Anglo-Irish fiction 1800-1850
The years 1800-1850 saw the emergence in Ireland of a number of novelists and short story writers who took as their subject matter their native country, its people and its social, economic and historical problems. Their pioneering work provides not only a unique record of life in rural Ireland in the late 18th and early 19th centuries before the disasters of the famine years in the 1840s changed many things irreversibly; it also initiated the tradition of Anglo-Irish fiction which has flourished since then. The book examines the origins of that tradition, and includes discussion of major figures including Maria Edgeworth, Lady Morgan, the Banim brothers, Gerald Griffin and William Carleton, and the early work of Charles Lever and Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, and also of a number of lesser writers such as Samuel Lover, Charles Maturin and Mrs SC Hall.

Abstract

The years 1800-1850 saw the emergence in Ireland of a number of novelists and short story writers who took as their subject matter their native country, its people and its social, economic and historical problems. Their pioneering work provides not only a unique record of life in rural Ireland in the late 18th and early 19th centuries before the disasters of the famine years in the 1840s changed many things irreversibly; it also initiated the tradition of Anglo-Irish fiction which has flourished since then. The book examines the origins of that tradition, and includes discussion of major figures including Maria Edgeworth, Lady Morgan, the Banim brothers, Gerald Griffin and William Carleton, and the early work of Charles Lever and Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, and also of a number of lesser writers such as Samuel Lover, Charles Maturin and Mrs SC Hall.
