in 1577. In late 1579, when Sir Henry realized that he would not be appointed Lord Lieutenant of Ireland with Philip as his Deputy, it would be plausible that he recommended Spenser to Grey. This scenario may not have enough external evidence to be entirely persuasive, but it is not implausible. Some biographical issues can be clarified if we recognize that we are dealing not with a dichotomy between fact and fiction but with a continuum extending from the

post of Lord Lieutenant. The latter position enabled him not only to press religious uniformity, but to use his civil power to encourage informers, use the local militia and play upon the loyalties of the local gentry (particularly those with recent dubious pasts) to reassert the Church’s authority. The early Baptist movement in the North-​East of the 1650s was located in Newcastle, where it was nurtured by the presence of both an army garrison and the benevolent government of Robert Lilburne and Colonel Paul Hobson, who had served under Sir Arthur Hesilrige in the

Indeed occasion is a central feature of Milton’s masque since it was written with the composer Henry Lawes to celebrate the appointment in 1631 of the Earl of Bridgewater as President of the Council of Wales and Lord Lieutenant of Wales and the counties on the Welsh border. Milton’s occasion is far more ostensibly public, indeed political, as the hazardous allegorical journey of the Lady and her

building sketched out in the dirt. Instead, the commemorative speech engaged in sleight of hand that gave a glimpse of the truth, a ploy that would be followed until the opening of the Royalty in the summer of 1787. In true ‘Plausible Jack’ style, however, he gave away a little too much by pointing everyone’s attention to the theatre’s place ‘within the Liberty of the Tower of London’ and by dedicating the venue to its inhabitants. Given Palmer’s reputation, Harris should have been inquisitive about the position taken by the Lord Lieutenant Governor of the Tower

The cartographic consciousness of Irish gothic fiction

suggests a deep-seated concern with exclusively Irish, not British, national valorisation. Recommending Amana to the attention of Elizabeth Percy, the Countess of Northumberland, whose husband acted as Lord Lieutenant of Ireland from 1763 to 1765, Griffith reminds Percy of her family lineage, extolling ‘the names of Percy and Seymour ’ as virtually synonymous with ‘Liberty’ and ‘Glory’ ( Amana , [p. v]). She moreover praises Percy herself for her ‘humanity, benevolence and affability’, calling the latter ‘the characteristic of true nobility, in opposition to that

’.12 The tenor of these opening remarks is broadly nationalist but also ameliorative, and, combined with the touch of humour that evidently inflected the speech, Stopford Green’s rhetorical strategies suggest she was promoting a broader and more inclusive version of politics to and for Ireland than was allowed for by prevailing nationalist and unionist binaries. The setting and the predispositions of the hosting organisation, however, provided a much narrower political framework. The presence of the Lord Chief Justice and the Lord Lieutenant, both of whom gave the

Political violence in the fiction of William Trevor

in the eighteenth century. Lahardane has even-handedly welcomed both the Lord Lieutenant and Daniel O’Connell. When Everard shoots at the intruders, he is not angry or belligerent, but remorseful. He knows the family of the boy he shot and visits them after the incident. Neither is Horohan any sort of serious political activist fired by patriotic passion. As a result of his actions, he is rejected rather than heroised by his community. Everard, on his return to an independent Ireland, recognises that the days of Anglo-Irish privilege are over, acknowledging that

life – upon which character and plot depend in the mimetic mode. Naturally Jonathan Swift, the pre-eminent if marginal figure of authority within the first novel, is expunged. By a disturbing corollory, so is that breezily amusing villain, the earl of Wharton, sometime lord-lieutenant of Ireland. Authority, both the moral kind and the merely institutional, has dissolved.
