This chapter discusses Castle Rackrent, an Irish novel by Maria Edgeworth which illustrates the history of Anglo-Irish fiction and the reflective qualities of a literary history. Besides disclosing the literary history of Ireland, the novel as well serves as a glimpse in to the genealogy of the Rackrents and a mirror of the discontinuities and crises of an emergent literary form in the age of revolution.
