Main Description
A biography of Michael Davitt (1846¿1906), founder of the Land League and a major figure in the Irish Republican Brotherhood, written by John Devoy, the leader of Irish nationalist opinion in America, and published in a series of newspaper articles shortly after Davitt¿s death. The two men had fallen out in 1886 and this memoir is particu larly informative for the period 1878¿1880. Devoy holds that Davitt remained closer to the Fenians than many of his contemporaries recognised. Edited by W. J. Mc Cormack and Carla King.
Main Description
This is the story of a collaboration between two giants of late 19th-century Irish nationalism in the formulation of the New Departure and the early emergence of the land agitation. John Devoy was a Fenian imprisoned for administering the Fenian oath who spent most of his adult life in exile as a journalist for the New York Herald. Michael Davitt was a major figure in the Irish Republican Brotherhood who founded the Irish National Land League. Although both men shared similar hopes for the Irish nation their methods and approaches were to diverge, and they fell out in 1882. This memoir is particularly informative for the period between 1878 and 1880. when the New Departure was initiated.
