Description

Legends and Stories of Ireland

by Samuel Lover

An early 19th century collection of comic Irish short stories.

"Most of the stories are given in the manner of the peasantry; and this has led to some peculiarities that might be objected to, were not the cause explainednamely, frequent digressions in the course of the narrative, occasional adjurations, and certain words unusually spelt. As regards the first, I beg to answer, that the stories would be deficient in national character without it; the Irish are so imaginative that they never tell a story straightforward, but constantly indulge in episode; for the second, it is only fair to say, that in most cases the Irish peasant's adjurations are not meant to be in the remotest degree irreverent, but arise merely from the impassioned manner of speaking which an excitable people are prone to; and I trust that such oaths as "thunder-and-turf, " or maledictions, as "bad cees to you, " will not be considered very offensive..."

"Samuel Lover (February 24, 1797 Dublin - July 6, 1868) was an Irish songwriter, novelist, as well as a painter of portraits, chiefly miniatures. He produced a number of Irish songs, of which several - including The Angel's Whisper, Molly Bawn, and The Four-leaved Shamrock - attained great popularity. He also wrote some novels, of which Rory O'More (in its first form a ballad), and Handy Andy are the best known, and short Irish sketches, which, with his songs, he combined into a popular entertainment called Irish Nights. He joined with Dickens in founding Bentley's Magazine."
