Book Description

Published in 1917, ‘The Oppressed English’, by Ian Hay (the pen-name of John Hay Beith; schoolmaster, soldier, writer, and playwright) gives a wonderful satirical view of ‘England’, as seen through the eyes of her ‘Dominions’, and the eyes of Great Britain. In particular, Ireland, as nearly half of the book gives an interesting account of solving ‘The Irish Question’, along with England’s views on Ireland, and Ireland’s views on England. Written tongue-in-cheek, as most of the author’s work is, Ian Hay shows us the political machinations of that era, while definitely allowing us glimpses of his own point of view.
Further information on this fascinating author will be found in the foreward provided by AlwaysWrite Ent. Many of the books offered by AlwaysWrite Ent. are provided exactly as the author presented them in their original format. All works have been entered, and edited by hand, and not merely scanned.

3.0 out of 5 stars Satire? January 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Mr. Hayes (a Scotsman), takes a sardonic and and ironic look into the English in this short, satiric essay. It's funny until he gets stuck on the Irish, when he loses his sense of humor and reverts to being a dour Scotsman. While not his best work, it's still worth a read.
