Summary
Michael Davitt (1846-1906), was an important figure in Irish history. Active in the Fenian movement he was arrested in 1870 by the British and imprisoned for seven years. After his release he continued his efforts and founded the Land League. Once again he was arrested and sent to prison in England. While in solitary confinement he wrote a number of pieces, all of which are published here for the first time. In addition to valuable autobiographical material, they include essays on the Irish land war, how Ireland was robbed of her Parliament, English civilization, and the education of the Irish citizen. Carla King teaches at St. Patrick's College. The Classics of Irish History series. -- Publisher description
