Rehearsed Reading Castle Rackrent

Pronounced by W.B. Yeats to be “one of the most inspired chronicles written in English”, Castle Rackrent offers a glimpse into the demise of the corrupt Rackrent dynasty, told by the ‘loyal’ family servant Thady Quirk. Published in 1800, Castle Rackrent is considered to be the first historical novel and is a witty satire on the effects of the feudal system in Ireland.
