Softcover Fine UNUSED, VERY GOOD, NOT EX-LIBRARY, 1st edition, 256 pages. Daniel O'Connell, the Liberator, was one of Ireland's greatest political figures. He married the ... dowerless Mary in 1802, thereby jeopardizing his inheritance and forging a bond that would last until Mary's death in 1836. Erin I. Bishop has drawn upon the more than one thousand letters they wrote to each other to tell this special story of their love. But this is much more than a person story; it is an in-depth portrait of early nineteenth-century social and domestic life in Ireland. In thematic chapters--dealing with love and marriage, motherhood, domesticity, family and kin, sickness and health, and religion--Bishop paints both an intimate picture of the life of one woman and a panoramic view of a time and a social stratum--the Catholic middle class--that have hitherto received inadequate attention. Erin L. Bishop is an historian with the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency in Springfield. *****PLEASE NOTE: This item is shipp Read more Show Less

Overview

In 1800 Daniel O'Connell, a young Kerry barrister who had just made his first forays into national politics, began a clandestine correspondence with his distant cousin Mary O'Connell of Tralee. Two years later Daniel secretly married the dowerless Mary in Dublin, jeopardizing his inheritance and forging a bond that would last until Mary's death in 1836. Husband and wife corresponded voluminously from the beginning of their courtship until Mary's death, and over a thousand letters between them have survived.. "The World of Mary O'Connell, based on close examination of these letters and of Mary's correspondence with other family members and friends, is more than a portrait of the Liberator's wife. Through the life and letters of Mary O'Connell, Erin Bishop has produced a study of social and domestic life in Ireland in the early nineteenth century.
