1 Gonne and Allingham It is clear from the writings that both Gonne and Allingham’s sympathies lie with the cause of the Irish. The police in both works are unforgiving and faithful, maybe blindly faithful, to their duty. Although there is rebellion, it is far from enough and as the evictions continue so does the misery. The landowners and other authoritative figures are just as cruel as the police in their own ways. However, there are those who are true to their duties as human beings, despite their loyalties or nationality. Father Stephen’s, from Gonne’s, Evictions , is caught between his Irish nationalism and his duty as a man of the cloth. Even among the British, his clothing is his “passport”. He is not seen as a dangerous man to them, only as a preacher, although there are those who do scowl at him. Father Stephen’s was part of a plan to poison the bailiff. With the bailiff dead, there was hope that the evictions would stop for a time. When Stephens was called upon to help the sick bailiff, his only response was, “I can’t refuse a sick call.” There was no resistance at that moment, only a sense of duty.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
