REVIEW The Great Shame: And the Triumph of the Irish in the English-Speaking World

REVIEW The Great Shame: And the Triumph of the Irish in the English-Speaking World Thomas Keneally ✓ 1 FREE DOWNLOAD FREE DOWNLOAD ä The Great Shame: And the Triumph of the Irish in the English-Speaking World In the 19th century the Irish population was halved This masterly book traces the three causes of this depletion; first the manine second the Irish diaspora and the emigrations to places such as Am. Long read If you have the time to get into the details of the great Irish diaspora then this is the book Thomas Keneally has extensively researched the history of the various Irish leaders of the 19th Century and how they influenced the way Ireland was to be perceived by the New World North America Australia It was an old pattern Ireland emasculating its heroes then passing autograph books to them through the barsKeneally starts the book with the history of his own Irish ancestor a criminal who was transported to the Australian penal colony for making threats against his landlord The author paints a dire picture of life in Ireland even before the potato famine occurred Families could be dispossessed of their humble lodgings overnight and left to beg for alms Crimes were punished harshly even the most minimal misdemeanors met with shackled imprisonment aboard the Botany Bay transports Before 1835 most Irish emigrants settled in Canada usually in Nova Scotia or Newfoundland or New Brunswick These were the Ulster Irish who viewed emigration as an opportunity rather than an exile After 1835 the United States became the preferred destination especially after the Potato Famine of 1845 caused desperate journeys across the still treacherous Atlantic ocean The final allotment were sent to the Aussie penal colonies where most would never see their wives or families again At least 25% of the Irish populace died or left Ireland which suited the Anglo overseers as they felt the land would be easier to govern with fewer native residents But Australia was the opposite of handy Nova Scotia In the Irish imagination it was synonymous with the worst kind of exile the un chosen one the exile of chainsYounger Irish leaders started popping up mostly from the upper class Anglo Irish families They too were transported seen as dangerous political fiends who might sway the remaining starving denizens of the Emerald Isle Some escaped their penal chains and set sail for the United States where they fought in the Civil War both sides and established new homes and new careers In the New Yorks and Bostons of America they found something they had never found elsewhere which was leverage and power The Emigrant Society would greet Irish newcomers and offer them job advice lodging tips and the ability to report swindlers and unjust sea captains Once established there was also a set process to send money back home This was a completely different approach than the being thrown on shore experience in Canada or the slavery of Australia It also explains the long binding loyalty that still exists between the East Coast of the Atlantic states and IrelandThis book really is a fascinating read Even the section on the blighted potato destruction reads like a thriller Today we know the potato blight was caused by a fungus now thought to be extinct yet it wrecked so many lives while helping to build three newer nations Canada the United States Australia with the sweat and tears of the distressed Irish However the wilted potato is not the book s focus which instead looks at the very detailed biographies of the various men who clad for expatriate control Keneally gets weedy to the point that he seems to know where an escapee for example was sitting while waiting for a clandestine meeting in the outback bush Still fascinatingThe fabled rebellions never ignited in Ireland at least not until the 20th Century Every time a new leader expected the populace to rise up to smite the English oppressors not much happened Keneally makes a valid point that it was the Irish myth of irrepressibility rather than the angry armed village which conuered the worldBook Season Year Round long voyages ماجرای فرار ارتشبد قره باغی journeys across the still treacherous
