Opis: Lives of Illustrious and Distinguished Irishmen, Vol. 1 - Wills James

Excerpt from Lives of Illustrious and Distinguished Irishmen, Vol. 1: From the Earliest Times to the Present Period, Arranged in Chronological Order, and Embodying a History of Ireland in the Lives of Irishmen
Among the many popular expedients by which modern literature is distinguished; that on which the plan of this work is framed, may be praised for its singular compass: its object is to collect the lessons of our moral and political history, and present them in the inductive form of examples, which expand or contract with the importance and interest of the subject. Instead of the continued progress of events, which demand laborious retention, the attention is excited by the familiar attraction of personal interest; and is thus led by successive and seemingly occasional incident, into a growing interest in details, which might otherwise fatigue the reader before they could be understood.
The extensive series of national Biography, of which this first portion is now offered to the public, has been planned to carry into effect this view. The successful execution of the Biographical Histories of England and Scotland, seem to demand the present work for Ireland, as indispensable to the completion of this department of our national literature. To supply this desideratum, the present publication has been projected, in which shall be comprised the lives of all such Irishmen, or persons connected with Irish History, as can for any reason be considered entitled to such notice. The following arrangement will convey a more distinct idea of the plan of this work. It is to be divided into Six Periods, conformable in duration to the successive changes of our history Of these the main divisions are the following: -
I. From the earliest times to the Danish invasions in the 8th century.
II. From the Danish invasions to the battle of Clontarf.
III. From the Battle of Clontarf to Queen Elizabeth's death.
IV. From Queen Elizabeth's death to the accession of George III.
V. From the accession of George III. to his death.
VI. From the accession of George IV. to the present period.
