Sample text

Harriet Martineau’s Irish Romance 31 Langtrey proved to be a gentleman of good education, though orphaned and poor; ‘‘he aspired to a literary life’’ (Martineau, 1861b, p. 338) but was compelled to earn his living tutoring a young Dublin woman, whose father was a local dignitary. When the two fell in love, he was dismissed and, worse, taken to court by the girl’s outraged father on false charges; although the charges were dismissed, Langtrey was disgraced, impoverished, ill, and threatened with eviction.

4, p. 88). Martineau confronts racist stereotypes condemning the ‘‘shiftless’’ Irish by re-asserting the claim she advanced in 1832s ‘‘Ireland’’: that the spirit of ennui generated by chronic poverty stems from unrelieved futility and hopelessness rather than inherent racial depravity, a perspective she extends to plantation slaves, the industrial working-poor, and other economically oppressed groups. Her conclusion to Letters from Ireland asserts: ‘‘There was a time when Ireland gave light – intellectual and moral – to the nations of northern Europe y She had a reputation for scholarship and sanctity before England and Scotland were distinctly heard of.

But Martineau was among those who operated out of a genuine concern with facilitating social reform and progress; according to this ideology, the ‘‘haves’’ are by definition under a social and spiritual obligation to extend economic equity, social reforms, industrialization, and modernization to the ‘‘have nots,’’ an obligation as binding in terms of India and Ireland as to black slaves in the West Indies and Africa and white slaves in England’s industrial North. England had serious issues with social oppression at home, no less than in its colonies, as Martineau’s writing repeatedly attests.
