The wild Irish girl by Morgan( Book )

"When Horatio, the son of an English lord, is banished to his father's Irish estate as punishment for his dissipated ways, he goes off in search of adventure. On the wild west coast of Connaught he finds remnants of a romantic Gaelic past--a dilapidated castle, a Catholic priest, a deposed king, and the king's lovely daughter, Glorvina. In this setting and among these characters Horatio learns the history, culture, and language of a country he had once scorned, but he must do so in disguise, for his own Enlgish ancestors are responsible for the ruin of the Gaelic family he comes to love."--Back cover

"Set in seventeenth-century India, The Missionary focuses on the relationship between Hilarion, a Portuguese missionary to India, and Luxima, an Indian prophetess. Both are aristocratic, devoted to their religions, bound by vows of chastity, and begin the novel biased against other cultures. This Broadview Literary Texts edition also includes extensive primary source appendices that situate the novel in relation to Irish, Portuguese and Indian history, as well as to the literature of sensibility and travel writing."--Jacket

Florence Macarthy : an Irish tale (1818) by Morgan( Book )

49 editions published between 1818 and 2016 in 3 languages and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first modern scholarly edition of Florence Macarthy: An Irish Tale (1818). Owenson's seventh novel, it is the most sophisticated of her four 'national tales'. In these tales, Owenson combined conventional romance plotlines with discussion of the political and social problems in Ireland, following the passing of the Act of Union in 1800. The plot concerns General Fitzwalter, an Anglo-Irish aristocrat, returning to Ireland to claim his inheritance. A series of incidents involving both mistaken and assumed identity drives the plot along, whilst delivering a polemic against the failure of the post-Union administration to emancipate the Irish Catholics or to deal with increasing poverty. The vivacious patriotic novelist and mistress of disguise, Lady Clancare/Florence Macarthy, who wins the affection of General Fitzwalter also functions as a voice against the mysogyny of the contemporary literary establishment."--Publisher's website

"Miss Owenson has been long celebrated, as an eminent proof of the vast extent of the powers of the imagination; and her ardent attachment to the "Emerald Isle," elicits patriotic fire in every page of her writings, when the "green fields of Erin" are the subject ... this last effusion of her mind will be perused with the strongest emotions of sympathy and philanthropy, by all those who weep over the degradation, or rejoice in the melioration of the condition of man."

Sydney, Lady Morgan (?1783-1859) is best remembered as a novelist whose highly successful historical romances often dealt with sexual, religious and racial discrimination. This work, published in 1840, examines the role of women in history. Morgan originally planned to write four volumes, but owing to her ill health only the first two, focusing on the Old Testament and classical civilization, were completed. Morgan proposes the view that women were really the dominant sex that shaped human society. She criticizes the legal discrimination against women that persists even in an age when superiority is no longer defined by physical strength. In Volume 1 she focuses on 'savage' and 'semi-civilized' peoples, and examples of societies as described in the Old Testament. Morgan writes vividly and passionately about the indignities to which women are subjected by men.
