Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With her satire on Anglo-Irish landlords in Castle Rackrent (1800), Maria Edgeworth pioneered the regional novel and inspired Sir Walter Scott's Waverley (1814). Politically risky, stylistically innovative, and wonderfully entertaining, the novel changes the focus of conflict in Ireland from religion to class, and boldly predicts the rise of the Irish Catholic bourgeoisie. The second edition now includes new notes informed by the latest scholarship.

Synopsis:

During the 1790s, with Ireland in political crisis, Maria Edgeworth made a surprisingly rebellious choice: in "Castle Rackrent", her first novel, she adopted an Irish Catholic voice to narrate the decline of a family from her own Anglo-Irish class.
