This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: "Written in Stone" is an attempt to record the first-hand links to the people who changed the political landscape of Ireland, before all traces vanish completely. This book includes images of the numerous examples of graffiti left on the walls of Kilmainham Jail by its political inmates from the War of Independence, Civil War and even further back in Irish history. Kilmainham Jail housed many of Ireland's key historical flgures, from the 1798 rebellion right through to the Civil War; political prisoners who were proud to sacrifice their freedom for the cause they believed in. Many of them also left a physical mark on the jail, inscribing their names and other messages on various walls and doorways in the building. Those mentioned in the graffiti in the jail include Robert Emmet, Eamon de Valera, Michael Collins and Richard Mulcahy, among many others. As Kilmainham Jail lay derelict for so long, over the years much of the graffiti has faded or disintegrated, with some having disappeared completely. "Written in Stone" is a product of years of painstaking research into the graffiti and the (sometimes little-known) people who made them. The book, which contains photographs of many of the pieces of graffiti, discusses some of the heartbreaking messages left for posterity, as well as drawings of the Four Courts and even of Adolf Hitler. It is a unique record of these highly unusual links to the people who changed the political landscape of this country forever. Included is an audio CD by Maurice O'Keefe of Irish Life and Lore featuring comment by Niamh O'Sullivan which was nominated for the PBS radio prize.". Codice inventario libreria

Riassunto: Written in Stone is an attempt to record the first-hand links to the people who changed the political landscape of Ireland, before all traces vanish completely. This book includes images of the numerous examples of graffiti left on the walls of Kilmainham Jail by its political inmates from the War of Independence, Civil War and even further back in Irish history.

Kilmainham Jail housed many of Ireland's key historical flgures, from the 1798 rebellion right through to the Civil War; political prisoners who were proud to sacrifice their freedom for the cause they believed in. Many of them also left a physical mark on the jail, inscribing their names and other messages on various walls and doorways in the building. Those mentioned in the graffiti in the jail include Robert Emmet, Éamon de Valera, Michael Collins and Richard Mulcahy, among many others.

As Kilmainham Jail lay derelict for so long, over the years much of the graffiti has faded or disintegrated, with some having disappeared completely. Written in Stone is a product of years of painstaking research into the graffiti and the (sometimes little-known) people who made them. The book, which contains photographs of many of the pieces of graffiti, discusses some of the heartbreaking messages left for posterity, as well as drawings of the Four Courts and even of Adolf Hitler. It is a unique record of these highly unusual links to the people who changed the political landscape of this country forever.

Sinossi: Kilmainham Jail has housed many of Ireland's key historical figures in the struggle for independence, from the 1798 rebellion through to the Civil War. Although it also held many ordinary criminals as well, the political prisoners were proud to sacrifice their freedom for the cause they believed in. They were determined to leave their mark on the jail, and on history, and inscribed their names or mottos on various walls, doorways, and window sills in the building. Names include the inspirational (Robert Emmet, De Valera), the threatened (Michael Collins, Richard Mulcahy) and names of the less well-known but equally important (the Clifford sisters, Annie Sinnott, James Roberts).
