The Wild Irish Girl: A National Tale


Sydney Owenson
[afterwards Lady Morgan]

[ Epigraph ]

Questa gente benche mostra selvagea
E pur gli monte la contrada accierba
Nondimento l’e dolcie ad cui l’assagia.

‘This race of men, tho’ savage they may seem,
The country, too, with many a mountain rough,
Yet are they sweet to him who tries and tastes them.’

—Fazio Delli Uberti’s Travels through Ireland in the 14th Century
