Then there are the hard 'C' sounds in stanza two: "corpse", "crypt", "cloudy canopy" – which evoke, perhaps, the tread of a funeral march, the dislodged clods of earth, the entombment of the personified century.

While this questioning of religious authority extends to more bitter registers through the works of independent animators such as Phil Mulloy it is through the re-emergence of the ‘comedy vicar’ construct in Nick Park/Aardman’s Wallace and Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit (2005) that we are reminded not only of an embedded sense of enquiry as tacit component but also of its status as a perennial across British culture.

On the other hand, we had the absurd whimsy of Monty Python’s Flying Circus, the memories of which appear to be entirely formed around a handful of decent sketches. A few days after his arrival in Dublin he died suddenly of heart disease, brought on by prison cruelties. This was not a fair question; the men had been summoned to Dublin to consult about the best way of preparing for a fight, and now they were being used simply to justify Mr.

And I had the good luck to come from the kidders. Men, women, and children went in payment, too; prisoners taken in cap- tured towns, children roaming the countryside were sold to those who transported them to the West Indies, to work as slaves in the planta- tions. # Cromwell landed in August; in November, Owen Roe O'Neill died on the island of Lough Oughter in county Cavan.

William Hazlitt, who had a knack for penetrating mere literary fashion, described Moore's verse in The Spirit of the Age (1825) as "a shower of beauty; a dance of imagery; a stream of music; ... this continuous and incessant flow of voluptuous thoughts and shining allusions," but he qualified his praise by noting that Moore "is willing to be tawdry, or artificial, or common-place.... [His poetry] seduces the taste and enervates the imagination" with "a play of fancy, a glitter of words, a shallowness of thought, and a want of truth and solidity...."

Southern surely intends the comedy in his scenes, stories, and extended jokes to be both funny and disturbing, in some ways disturbing because it is funny (or vice versa). Dean SwiIt had heard much oI the hospitable Iestivities oI Thomastown, the seat oI Mr. Immense resources were placed at their disposal, new levies and armaments were ordered; and again all the might of England by land and sea was to be put forth against Ireland.

I desire the Reader will observe, that I Calculate my Remedy for this one individual Kingdom of IRELAND, and for no other that ever was, is, or, I think, ever can be upon Earth.
