A lecture by Professor Thomas Bartlett, Emeritus Professor of History “Was Bonaparte in the GPO? Reflections on the legend of Napoleon in Irish history 1796-1916” on Monday 22 October 2018 at 19:30.
In this lecture, Professor Thomas Bartlett examines first, Napoleon Bonaparte’s involvement with Ireland during the Revolutionary wars, 1793-1815 and, second, considers his legacy in nineteenth-century Irish history. Through an examination of Napoleon as he appears in prose, poetry, ballads, folklore, spectacle and later film, Professor Bartlett offers an assessment of his enduring impact on Irish opinion. He concludes with a discussion of Napoleon’s influence on the 1916 rebels, notably Patrick Pearse.
