Summary
"Ireland's foremost female writers of the nineteenth century, Edith Somerville and Martin Ross, advocated the 'High Art of Comedy' during a period of transition and turbulence in the Irish countryside. This critical biography of their collaboration from 1890 to Martin Ross's death in 1915 studies the self-conscious artistry of the creators of what some considered the finest Irish novel of the nineteenth century, The Real Charlotte (1894). It traces the influence of both popular culture and high art in the treatment of the volatile Irish landscape and looks for the first time at the contexts of the immensely popular Irish R M stories and Edith Somerville's accompanying illustrations. The writers' sly send-ups of romantic notions of Irishness are revealed, while using certain expectations of a picturesque countryside to their own advantage."--BOOK JACKET
