The Red And The Green
The Red And The Green | Iris Murdoch
11 posts | 2 to read
The scene is Ireland. The time, 1916, is the eve of the famous tragic Easter Rebellion in Dublin, which startled Europe even in the midst of the First World War. A single Anglo-Irish family provides the extremely diverse characters. Pat Dumay is a Catholic and an Irish patriot. His relentlessly pious mother pursues her own private war with his step-father, a man sunk in religious speculation and drink. Pat's English-bred Protestant cousin and rival, Andrew Chase-White, an officer in King Edward's Horse, puzzles out his complex emotions about Ireland and Frances, the girl he loves, against a background of the fear of death, while Frances's father, Christopher Bellman, scholar and cynic, finds love of Ireland a more passionate matter than he had bargained for. Weaving these people together into a tragi-comic pattern moves Millie Kinnard: fast, feminist, and only just respectable. As rebellion looms nearer, tension mounts in the sombre rain-soaked Dublin streets; and if, in the end, death disperses most of the people, this is felt to be as inevitable as in a Sophoclean play.

My holiday books are almost entirely ebooks and audiobooks, but the cover of my current audiobook and the cover of my most recent physical purchase fit the red and green prompt. Really excited for the new Brené Brown, but I‘m not sure if I‘ll get to it this month.

When you are looking around for ideas for your first photo challenge and realise your son has helpfully put his green lizard on your red TBR Christmas pick! This is the physical book I have first up to read in December straight after I finish one of my #booked2021 prompts. Book themed photo entry- 15 points woohoo!

BittersweetBooks This one is laugh out loud funny, one of my favorite holiday reads! 🤣 2mo
Magpiegem @bittersweetbooks Ooh great! I can‘t wait to start it! (edited) 2mo
