Scenes from Comus (2005)

, tenor and orchestra between 1962 and 1965, is Hill’s contemporary to the year and month, so the occasion can be seen to be doubled to take in Hill’s own seventieth birthday. 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

’.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

He was made Lord President of the North in 1628 (l. 19), appointed Lord Deputy of Ireland in 1631 (l. 20), he became Lord Lieutenant in 1640 (l. 22), and was made Earl of Strafford (l. 26) and, later that year, captain-general of the army (l. 24). At the same time as his elevation to Earl of Strafford, he was made Baron Raby; by taking this title he gave deep offence to another Privy Councillor, Sir Henry Vane, the owner of Raby Castle in Co.

.—But we will, quit this melancholy side of the prospect, if possible, for ever. The Nabob, I need not tell you, is merely a viceroy to the Mogul, in like manner with your Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, and the representative of his most sublime master. Formerly his residence was at a distance from Calcutta,† and his intercourse with the Europeans restricted to embassies; but now his palace of Chitpore (for well does it deserve the name of a palace) is only four miles, as I have already told you, from Hartly House; and on such friendly terms does he live with the military

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.
