Description In the Gates of the North de Standish O'Grady:

Excerpt from In the Gates of the North I knew a man who delighted much to express himself with a certain amplitude and stateliness of diction, and rejoiced greatly when his words seemed to strike the ear with a sound like the measured tread of marching men. Once, in his sonorous manner, he wrote some large sentences concerning Irish History in general, of the relations of Irish heroic legend with the same, and of both with our country's still obscure, uncertain, and untravelled future - sentences which I propose to use here by way of preface or prelude to the heroic, romantic, and semi-historic Irish tale which I am about to tell. It is one which, perhaps, if I do not hope too much may be found prophetic as well as commemorative, and to belong as much to the future as to the past. "There is," he writes, "a pleasure in watching the reclamation of desert land - the choking moisture drained away, the sour peat mingled with sand, the stones collected into heaps, the making of roads, and the building of fences, and in the end, the sight of cornfields where the snipe shrieked, and herds of kine where the morass quaked.
