Castle Rackrent and Ennui - Edgeworth, Maria, and Butler, Marylin (Editor), and Butler, Marilyn (Editor)

Thady Quirk, steward to the decaying estate of the Rackrent family, narrates a story of four generations of a dying dynasty in Castle Rackrent. This volume also includes Ennui, the entertaining confessions of the Earl of Glenthorn, a bored aristocrat. Both novels offer a darkly comic and satirical expose of the Irish class system.
