The Devil from over the Sea: Remembering and Forgetting Oliver Cromwell in Ireland
Since his brutal conquest of Ireland, Oliver Cromwell has attained the status of Ireland's national ogre. This book uncovers the ways in which he was memorialized and sometimes conveniently forgotten from 1660 to 1900, exploring his diverse personae in history writing, religious works, literature, political polemic, folklore, and the landscape.
