Title
Discipline, Sentiment, and the Irish-American Public: Mary Ann [sic] Sadlier's Popular Fiction
Abstract
The Irish-born Mary Anne Sadlier (1820-1903) lived in Montreal from 1844 to 1860, and again from 1869 to 1903. Sadlier published roughly sixty novels and numerous short stories during her literary career, eighteen of which were written in Montreal. Her autobiographical novel, Elinor Preston, describes the struggle of some Irish immigrants in Quebec in the mid-nineteenth century who were torn over whether to associate with the province’s English-speaking Protestant community or its French-speaking Catholic community. The author describes Sadlier as "the most popular and influential...Irish-North American writer of the famine generation."
