Lover, Samuel (Author)
DESCRIPTION:
From The Preface: I Should Not Have Troubled The Reader With This Account Of The Birth, Parentage, And Education Of My Literary Bantlings, But To Have It Understood That Some Of Them Are Essentially Oral In Their Character, And, I Fear, Suffer Materially When Reduced To Writing This I Mention En Passant To The Critics; And If I Meet But Half As Good-Natured Readers As I Have Hitherto Found Auditors, I Shall Have Cause To Be Thankful But, Previously To The Perusal Of The Following Pages, There Are A Few Observations That I Feel Are Necessary, And Which I Shall Make As Concise As Possible Most Of The Stories Are Given In The Manner Of The Peasantry; And This Has Led To Some Peculiarities That Might Be Objected To, Were Not The Cause Explained--Namely, Frequent Digressions In The Course Of The Narrative, Occasional Adjurations, And Certain Words Unusually Spelt As Regards The First, I Beg To Answer, That The Stories Would Be Deficient In National Character Without It; The Irish Are So Imaginative That They Never Tell A Story Straightforward, But Constantly Indulge In Episode; For The Second, It Is Only Fair To Say, That In Most Cases The Irish Peasant's Adjurations Are Not Meant To Be In The Remotest Degree Irreverent, But Arise Merely From The Impassioned Manner Of Speaking Which An Excitable People Are Prone To; And I Trust That Such Oaths As Thunder-And-Turf, Or Maledictions, As Bad Cees To You, Will Not Be Considered Very Offensive
