Studia Hibernica

General Baron Edmund Harold (1737-1808): a ‘Celtic’ Writer in Germany

Studia Hibernica (1970), 30, (1), 119–154.

Abstract

The overthrow of the Jacobite cause in Ireland, and the confiscation and expatriation that resulted … well nigh extinguished the classes of landowners and merchants that produced both the writers of such works as have been passing under our notice, and the native readers for whom they wrote … In the succeeding age the laurels that decorated our exiled countrymen were sought in the fields of Mars rather than by the fountains of the Muses.1
