In the 18th century Ireland and England were different from each other. At the end of the 19th century they were still different #x2014;different from each other and from what they had been. This chapter does not discuss the political, economical, and societal differences between Ireland and England but focuses on the particular manifestations of Anglo-Irish relations in cultural terms. The chapter begins with history because the literary movement is deeply concerned with the bonds existing between the past and the present and because of the implied historical interpretations of the olden times. The chapter also touches on Edmund Burke's writings and the sentiments he had for the Anglo-Irish culture and the issue of Protestant Ascendancy.
