An Essay on Irish Bulls was intended to show the English public the talent and wit of the Irish lower classes. Originally devised by Maria's father, Richard Lovell Edgeworth, Irish Bulls is an informal philosophic dialogue on the nature of Bulls (logical absurdities) and jokes and jests in general. Published at the time of the Union, the overarching themes are confusions of identity and the relationship of Irish people to the English. This highly entertaining work has not been published as a single book since the nineteenth century.Hide synopsis
