The Polish Irishman Zusammenfassung

The Polish Irishman: The Life and Times of Count Casimir Markievicz Pat Quigley

Casimir Markievicz was a Polish count who fell in love with Ireland's Joan of Arc. His pictures hang in the National Gallery in Ireland and in Poland, but despite his famous name, he has been overshadowed by his wife's reputation. He was a Renaissance Man - artist, playwright, novelist, theatre director, and actor in silent films, but most of all, a man who loved to sing and dance. "The Polish Count and the Irish Rebel" depicts his unforgettable and life-enhancing story for the first time. The 'donkey on the stage' and 'the whiskey in the punch' are among many comical anecdotes from his career in the Irish theatre. The reader will also see the Rebel Countess in a different light - as an artist, lover and mother. Dublin in the early 1900s was the city of Joyce and Yeats, AE and Synge. Casimir knew them all and set Dublin's gossipers abuzz in the years from 1903 to 1913. "The Polish Count and the Irish Rebel" is the first study of Casimir's work and shows that his relationship with Constance and Ireland was a major part of his life. Their love changed with time but did not die.
