The Weans at Rowallan

by Kathleen Fitzpatrick

In reading The Weans at Rowallan one has to remember that the children are Irish, and neglected at that, and that the country is Irish and rather wildly Irish, and to remember also the history of the family. Taken as a series of episodes in the life of an ordinary family suitable for literature, the book might easily offend by its lapses here and there into something very like brutality. But it is the history of a very special family living under very curious conditions.
