Excerpt from 1000 Years of Irish Prose, Vol. 1: The Literary RevivalThe new period of British colonization of Ireland which began ...under Queen Elizabeth and continued to the end of the seven teenth century created a fundamental schism in Irish life which has persisted to the present day. Where the old anglo-norman colonists of the twelfth century and after were largely assimilated by the prevailing Gaelic culture, and in any case shared the religion of the people they invaded, the new colonists set out to destroy the Gaelic culture they found in situ; they felt the less sympathy for it because it was associated in their minds with the Roman Catholic religion, which was regarded by both Scottish and English settlers as an abominable heresy. Thus, as in the Spanish conquest of South America, the normally selfish outlook of a colonizing group was reinforced by religious bigotry - as well as by genuine religious idealism. Intermarriage between colonizers and-colonized, which had been the chief agency of norman-gaelic assimilation, was now out of the question. Religion, culture, political and economic status went hand in hand. Even in present-day Ireland the rough-and ready equation of an irish-gaelic name with Roman Catholicism and peasant origins is more often right than wrong.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

FOR USE IN SCHOOLS AND LIBRARIES ONLY. The seaside town of Isla has many stories, the most notable being the legend of the Seafari...ng Parrot. Locals claim that the Seafarer remembers every sound, every whisper, cry, laugh, or snort ever uttered. But, though there have been rumored Seafarer sightings , no one has actually seen the bird before. Other stories surround a boy named Pablo, who had washed up on shore in a blow-up swimming pool as an infant with only a lavender parrot as a companion. Now, on the eve of his tenth birthday, the stories are repeated. ""At first I thought it was a huge fish,"" Emmanuel, the man who found and took Pablo in, says. Pierre, the baker's guess was a good one: Perhaps Pablo has come from an undiscovered country, one unknown to the rest of the world. Maybe the inhabitants there lived in tree houses, or underground. Or maybe he's a pirate baby. But Pablo wants the truth, and the only one who might know it is Birdy, his parrot. After all, she was there, holding onto the raft. But unlike most birds who live in Isla, Birdy can neither talk or fly. Or, at least, she never has. Until...one day, when strong winds begin to blow-winds similar to the ones that brought Pablo to shore-Birdy begins to mutter. Could Birdy be a Seafaring parrot? If she is, then she will be able to tell Pablo the true story of where he came from-of who tied him so lovingly and safely to that raft? But, if she is, that also means the second part of the Seafarer myth is true...that Seafaring Parrots will, eventually, fly away. As Pablo is buzzing with questions, hopes, and fears, an old saying echoes in his mind: winds of change mean fortune lost or fortune gained. And while the winds rise in Isla, Pablo holds tight to Birdy. Would losing his companion, his dearest link to his past, be that loss? read more
