Sample text

In her epilogue, Martineau’s suggested remedies for Ireland’s protracted troubles are education – essential, of course, but a long-term solution at best – and emigration, which compelled the Irish to choose between starvation, eviction, and political disenfranchisement in their homeland or, in effect, transportation for the ‘‘crime’’ of chronic poverty. As a convict forever separated from home and family, Dora Sullivan’s fate weighs strikingly against those who stayed behind – to die alone, like her mother; to become a mad alcoholic, like her father; to become a criminal, like her husband; or to be orphaned, like her infant.

O’Connell was looking round anxiously for every means of making the Irish question popular in England, – even requesting an English author’’ – that is, Martineau herself – ‘‘whom he thought likely to be listened to, to travel in Ireland, under facilities provided by himself, in order to report upon the condition of the country’’ (Logan, 2005, Vol. 5, p. 107). O’Connell saw in her work on American culture (Martineau, 1837, 1838, 1839) a ‘‘capacity to understand and represent the political and social condition of another country’’ and thus, by extension, her suitability to write about Ireland ‘‘in a way which the English were willing to listen to’’ (Martineau, 1983, Vol.

Occurring as it did during the Napoleonic War era, the potential alliance between France and the disaffected Irish posed a more obvious threat, prompting the swift passage of a bill joining Ireland to England and dissolving the Irish Parliament (1800–1801). The resulting United Kingdom established a pattern for British domestic and imperial policy during the turbulent 19th century of empire-building, a period punctuated throughout by Ireland’s demands for home-rule. ’’ During 1843, O’Connell staged a series of ‘‘Monster Meetings’’ throughout Ireland to dramatize national support for Repeal; for his predilection for stirring up political agitation among the masses by making unsubstantiated promises, Martineau termed him ‘‘King Dan, the Agitator’’: his challenge to ‘‘the young men to say whether they would be slaves, or shed their blood in the field’’ (Logan, 2005, Vol.
