Excerpt from Life of Robert EmmetThe approaching centenary of the death of Robert Emmet offers sufficient reason for the production of a new biography of one who fills so large a place in the memories of the Irish people. What seemed to be mostMoreExcerpt from Life of Robert EmmetThe approaching centenary of the death of Robert Emmet offers sufficient reason for the production of a new biography of one who fills so large a place in the memories of the Irish people.

What seemed to be most required was a brief and direct account of his life rather than a book overloaded with unnecessary detail, and made prosy by interminable moralizing as in the case of Maddens biography- one keeping rather to the strictly ascertained facts or to those which seem to be borne out by sufficient evidence to justify their inclusion, than an attempt to form glowing periods with no special reference to the admitted data of Emmets life.

The actual history of Emmets attempt to accomplish a revolution has been somewhat obliterated by rhapsodical accounts of his career, and not a few readers have gathered from them an altogether erroneous impression of the qualities of a romantic but hardly great leader. It would be absurd to pretend that Emmet had the genius of Wolfe Tone.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
