Threatening letters had again begun to form an ordinary item of the morning’s post-bag. The momentary popularity which he had won by his defence of Hurrish had flickered and died. That, it was felt, was after all only an isolated case, whereas his misdeeds were perennial and unintermittent: he asked for rent; he professed his determination to have it; he declared that he could not exist without it. 40 Through these satirical references, she can be seen not only to ridicule the reductionist discourse to which her brother had been subjected, but also and ultimately to recognize that the activities of the League had by then already destabilized the structure on which the country’s agrarian economy had been built, and which had upheld the current system of landlordism.
1, 59. 27 28 Whitney Standlee Well-meaning and loyal to his landlord, the novel’s central character, Hurrish, is as paradoxical as the society he inhabits. 31 He shuns violence yet views his killing of a local farmer, Mat Brady, as a commonplace. Afterwards, he hides his crime from his Irish neighbours, not because he is ashamed of the deed or fears retribution for it, but because he knows that his fellow Irish people will view this act of self-defence with derision. In this, the most pivotal episode of the novel, events associated with the land war play an imperative if subsidiary role.
The extremes of the situation and the undercurrent of violence bring into sharp focus the nature of the agrarian conflict being played out and the roles that the participants: Irish, English, Anglo-Irish, Catholic and Protestant, aristocrat and peasant have to play in that conflict. A Drama in Muslin not only tells us something of the land war and its social and political tensions but also, and perhaps more importantly, offers its readers an insight into the aesthetics of the novel form itself at this moment, and in doing so teases out the tensions between the wish to tell stories of individuals as well as the history of the nation.
