Charles James Lever

Tony Butler

Description: 

In a little cleft, not deep enough to be a gorge, between two grassy hills, traversed by a clear stream, too small to be called a river, too wide to be a rivulet, stood, and, I believe, still stands, a little cottage, whose one bay window elevates it above the condition of a laboring man's, and shows in its spacious large paned proportions pretensions to taste as well as station. From the window a coast line can be seen to which nothing in the kingdom can find the equal.

St. Patrick's Eve

Description: 

IT was on the 16th of March, the eve of St. Patrick, not quite twenty years ago, that a little village on the bank of Lough Corrib was celebrating in its annual fair "the holy times," devoting one day to every species of enjoyment and pleasure, and on the next, by practising prayers and penance of various kinds, as it were to prepare their minds to resume their worldly duties in a frame of thought more seemly and becoming.

Luttrell Of Arran

Description: 

Luttrell Of Arran is written by Charles James Lever. One half the world knows not how the other half lives, says the adage; and there is a peculiar force in the maxim when applied to certain remote and little-visited districts in these islands, where the people are about as unknown to us as though they inhabited some lonely rock in the South Pacific Bickards.

The Fortunes of Glencore

Description: 

The Fortunes of Glencore is written by Charles James Lever. If in the world of well-bred life the incidents and events be fewer, because the friction is less than in the classes where vicissitudes of fortune are more frequent, the play of passion, the moods of temper, and the changeful varieties of nature are often very strongly developed, shadowed and screened though they be by the polished conventionalities of society.

The Dodd Family Abroad

Description: 

The Dodd Family Abroad is written by Charles James Lever. It was in no spirit of sarcasm on my countrymen that I took an Irishman to represent these incongruities; nay, more, I will say that in the very liability to be so strongly impressed from without, lies much of that unselfishness which forms that staple of the national character which so greatly recommends them to strangers.

A Day's Ride

The Daltons

Description: 

The Daltons is written by Charles James Lever. A THEATRE by daylight, a great historical picture in the process of cleaning, a ballet-dancer of a wet day hastening to rehearsal, the favorite for the Oaks dead-lame in a straw-yard, are scarcely more stripped of their legitimate illusions than is a fashionable watering-place on the approach of winter.
