Product Description

Product Description

Maria Edgeworth’s Ormond tells the story of Harry Ormond, a destitute orphan sent to live with his guardian’s wealthy cousin, King Corny, after his involvement in a nearly fatal shooting. Ormond travels to France, determined to raise his status and build his wealth, and encounters the country’s complex political scene, which reflects sentiments similar to Ireland’s revolutionary politics. Ormond was Edgeworth’s attempt to show the difference in morality in the face of distinct ideologies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad for time and place 25 July 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although this is somewhat simplistic, trite even, I enjoyed it once I got into it. It was intended to give a view of society in the British isles in the 18th century and sort of did. Poor boy ends up rich too.
