    Kindle James Plunkett   Strumpet City Epub Ê strumpet mobile, city ebok, Strumpet City EpubJames Plunkett although not a great stylist enriches his profound knowledge of working class Irish history with a great love for the city of Dublin and a sympathy for all its inhabitants from the wealthy to the poor As a consequence this novel about the 1913 Lock out is wise and often very moving Plunkett is particularly good at showing how political convictions rooted in a sense of place lead people to action and how these actions in turn transform their lives and alter their rela

    Kindle James Plunkett   Strumpet City Epub Ê strumpet mobile, city ebok, Strumpet City EpubStrumpet City is an Irish social novel published in 1969 that is good 50 years too late When everyone was waist deep in post modernist adventures this novel tries to warm the hearts for a battle and does it in an earnest and unpretentious way Like with any other social novel whether it's Steinbeck or Hugo we know where the author's sympathies lie No secret is ever made of it And frankly I do have a soft spot for a good social novel with the pureness of its heart its childlike stubbornness its teenage idealism its insistence on broadcasting all the wrongs and standing up for the little guy It's hard not to love 'Strumpet City' admire Fitz pity Rashers feel contempt for the Bradshaws and despise Father O'Connor oh how wonde

    Kindle James Plunkett   Strumpet City Epub Ê strumpet mobile, city ebok, Strumpet City EpubIn addition to being my May Book Club read Strumpet City is the chosen book for Dublin One City One Book an initiative of Dublin City Council Further information on this initiative can be found at many others I watched Hugh Leonard’s adaptation of James Plunkett’s Strumpet City on RTE television in 1980 we all sat glued to the television screen each week eagerly awaiting each episode as it unfolded So I was delighted this was chosen in our Book Club as the read for May as I finally got a chance to read it and also revisit the television series hired on DVD whilst reading the bookSet in Dublin at the beginning of the 20th Century and focusing on the 1913 lock out Strumpet City is considered a much loved Irish classic and rightly so James Plunkett did a superb job of capturing the social political and economic aspects of this era These were indeed difficult times for workers and their families who lived in the tenements in Dubli

    Kindle James Plunkett   Strumpet City Epub Ê strumpet mobile, city ebok, Strumpet City EpubStrumpet City is the great social novel of Dublin Plunkett does for Dublin what writers like Dickens did for London He expertly encapsulates the social strata of early 20th century Dublin with all it's hardship and poverty but also the loving comradery of the people which helps them survive the hardship Plunketts descriptions of the city are masterful He lets us hear smell and feel the clamour of the city A city which remained largely unchanged until the 1960s when the tenements were cleared once and for all While I would levy some criticism at Plunke

    Kindle James Plunkett   Strumpet City Epub Ê strumpet mobile, city ebok, Strumpet City EpubA very moving and personalised telling of the affects of the 1913 Dublin Lock outNo harsh reality around the poverty of the time is held back a book that is as graphic as it is explicitA profoundly moving story of the events leading up to and the devastating affects of not just the lock out but the poverty tens of thousands of families were forced to endureThe complete graphic descriptive passages of the abject poverty of the Dublin working classes is

    Kindle James Plunkett   Strumpet City Epub Ê strumpet mobile, city ebok, Strumpet City EpubA good book of historical fiction set in Dublin and focusing on the Lockout of 1913 There are characters from all walks of life and the story relayed is realistic The plight of the poor can not possibly leave the reader unmoved In the foreground you have a set of fictional characters in the background the well known Jim Larkin My complaint is that you can easily sort the characters into two groups the villains and the heroesThe bottom line I felt I ought to be engaged than I was

    Kindle James Plunkett   Strumpet City Epub Ê strumpet mobile, city ebok, Strumpet City EpubStrumpet City is considered a masterpiece for good reason it really is an a absolutely top notch example of what a social novel can be It's about the 1913 Dublin lockout and the lives of all sorts of people involved over the course of several years Every relationship is meaningful and every character is deep and interesting even the ones you dislike I haven't stopped thinking about it since finishing it yesterday and im sure I'll keep thinking about it for a while yet
