  1. It seems the poem Mn h-E was written about the same time as the novel was placed.
    Me, I’d always took the book as a tragedy in the Greek meaning. But a bit like Gone with the Wind you find the references 60 of so years after the fact you get a distillation of a multitude of lives. But you also find a degree of anti-Irishness that’s quite instructive.
    That Quin guy had me a bit stumped though. Him in the army an all.
