Notes

First edition, first impression, scarce with the dust jacket. "The portrait Darrell Figgis paints himself in Recollections of the Irish War shows him as a defender of personal liberty and individual opinion whose voice is stifled by authority, traits that he has in common with the Oisin of his satire" (Colby). Darrell Figgis was an Irish writer, poet and politician. He published successful novels under the pseudonym "Michael Ireland", such as The Return of the Hero. He rose to become a prominent Sinn Féin activist, playing a central role in the Howth Gun-running and the establishment of the Irish Free State Government. As a skilled writer and poet with an influential and adventurous role in these events, Figgis is "peculiarly fitted to become the chronicler of this remarkable phase in Irish history" (Preface).
