    eBook James Plunkett ´ Strumpet City ePUB ´ ´ strumpet book, city free, Strumpet City EpubJames Plunkett although not a great stylist enriches his profound knowledge of working class Irish history with a great love for the city of Dublin and a sympathy for all its inhabitants from the wealthy to the poor As a conseuence this novel about the 1913 Lock out is wise and often very moving Plunkett is particularly good at showing how political convictions rooted in a sense of place lead people to action and how these actions in turn transform their lives and alter

    eBook James Plunkett ´ Strumpet City ePUB ´ ´ strumpet book, city free, Strumpet City EpubStrumpet City is an Irish social novel published in 1969 that is good 50 years too late When everyone was waist deep in post modernist adventures this novel tries to warm the hearts for a battle and does it in an earnest and unpretentious way Like with any other social novel whether it's Steinbeck or Hugo we know where the author's sympathies lie No secret is ever made of it And frankly I do have a soft spot for a good social novel with the pureness of its heart its childlike stubbornness its teenage idealism its insistence on broadcasting all the wrongs and standing up for the little guy It's hard not to

    eBook James Plunkett ´ Strumpet City ePUB ´ ´ strumpet book, city free, Strumpet City EpubStrumpet City is the great social novel of Dublin Plunkett does for Dublin what writers like Dickens did for London He expertly encapsulates the social strata of early 20th century Dublin with all it's hardship and poverty but also the loving comradery of the people which helps them survive the hardship Plunketts descriptions of the city are masterful He lets us hear smell and feel the clamour of the city A city which remained largely unchanged until the 1960s when the tenements were cleared once and for all While I would levy some criticism at Plunkett for his character development he does give us Rashers Tierney I cannot think of Rashers match anywhere in literature and he must surely be one if the most beloved characters in Irish literature I would encourage all to read this book And for those interested there is an interesting podcast by History Ireland discussing the book and the period

    eBook James Plunkett ´ Strumpet City ePUB ´ ´ strumpet book, city free, Strumpet City EpubI first read this sometime in the early '80s after having seen the RTÉ television programme on PBS It's in the sprawling epic category although it doesn't stray much further north than Drumcondra nor south of Dún Laoghaire; the Phoenix Park marks its western extremity and Dublin Bay is the east Oh there are mentions of Connemara and Cork Liverpool and London but those are place people will come from or go to The real action takes place either in Kingstown as Dún Laoghaire was then known or within a few blocks of the Liffey inside a circle which could be drawn with Liberty Hall at the centre and Parnell Suare on the radius A tight little world indeed for an epicThe cast of characters is expansive enough however; mostly families There are the wealthy Bradshaws husband and wife occupying a handsome home in Kingstown with their two servants the elderly Miss Gilchrist and young Mary; there is the de facto family group in the rectory o
