This was a satire about the Irish life told by narrator Bonaparte O'Coonassa what a name There are LOTS of references to potatoes poverty drunkenness perpetual rainfall and the Gaelic language issue It's a very grim book but manages to be uite funny because of the narrator's writing style A very good introduction to Flann O'Brien in my opinion

Flann O'Brien Brian O'Nolan is better known for his first two novels At Swim Two Birds and The Third Policeman which are still the best starting points for anyone who has never read him This comic novella was written in Gaelic and first published in 1941 but was not translated into English until after his deathThe Poor Mouth is a parody of the Gaelic novels that were fashionable in De Valera's Ireland and as such is full of the cliches of the genre starving peasants living in houses shared with pigs and cattle eating nothing but potatoes and fish and being subjected to never ending rain while preserving their ancient and often outrageously exaggerated storytelling traditions To a modern reader unversed in the source material and the political climate of the day this is charming but loses much of its edge as always with O'Brien it is surreal inventive and often very funny but one senses it was kept short out of necessity It almost certainly loses much in translation and for me Ralph Steadman's illustrations are of tangential interest only and if anything distract rather than add to the narrative I do not think that its like will ever be there again

Flann O’Brien is sinisterly funny in his short novel about the life of Bonaparte O'Coonassa The story is based in a rural area in the West of Ireland and it is home to the most Gaelic residents known to Ireland O’Brien satirizes the Gaelic roots of these residents by using the carnivalesue to exaggerate their living conditions All of the residents of Corkadoragha are extremely poor and they only have potatoes to eat They share their homes with animals even though they cannot stand the smell of them simply because they don’t know any better The weather conditions of Corkadoragha are also carnivalesue in that it rains so much you can swim to different parts of the town O’Brien is satirizing not only the poor uneducated people of the west coast but is also frowning up the people of Dublin and of the English The Dubliners for instance have a yearly feis where the townspeople get to show off their Gaelic ness by dancing and speaking Gaelic Crowds come from all over to experience what seems to be the last of the traditional Gaelic community of Ireland The President of the feis scorns the villagers in a silly speech where he warns that it is not only necessary to speak Gaelic but you must also speak of the Gaelic language itself to be truly Gaelic He says “There is no use in having Gaelic if we converse in it on non Gaelic topics He who speaks Gaelic but fails to discuss the language uestion is not truly Gaelic in his heart; such conduct is of no benefit to Gaelicism because he only jeers at Gaelic and reviles the Gaels There is nothing in this life so nice and so Gaelic as truly true Gaelic Gaels who speak in true Gaelic Gaelic about the truly Gaelic language” O’Brien The feis goes on for days in which some of the villagers lose their lives because of the mandatory Gaelic dancing Many of them faint because they have not eaten anything for days O’Brien is satirizing and sneering at the Gaelic Revivalists because they don’t really know or care what it’s like to be hungry and uneducated It is almost as though they are live figures in a museum that are not allowed to feel human only Gaelic O’Brien talks about the death of a baby that belongs to the main character and it is because of their seclusion miseducation and poverty that the little baby dies It is the only part of the novel where O’Brien uses a serious tone and reveals his true thoughts and feelings about the whole foolishness of the nationalist sentimentOne of the characters in the novel the village beggar Sitric O'Sanassa is made the exemplary Gael by the Dubliners and the tourists because he is so poverty stricken and so hungry that he can barely stand up His attitude towards life is amazingly happy though as if being Gael and poor is a blessing instead of an affliction Again this is O’Brien’s way of mocking the whole revivalist attitude He is trying to express his disappointment in how the Gaelic speaking people of the west are treated by both the Irish and English governments The residents are given meager aid and education and are expected to be thankful for it For example in the novel the main character goes to school to learn English and is beaten by the English schoolmaster for not answering correctly about what his name was Bonaparte was told that his name was to be “Jams O’Donnell” the same as everyone else in the class Throughout the novel it is the only bit of English Bonaparte ever learns and in the end finds his father that amusingly has the same name O’Brien also mocks the traditional roles of the other members of the family Bonaparte’s father is in jail because he was accused of something he didn’t do His mother is an idiot that takes everything literally and his grandfather is an old coot who is constantly thinking of ways to make money The Old Grey Fellow as Bonaparte would call him puts himself in charge of the money made from the humiliation of the residents by the Dubliners and tourists at the feisO’Brien’s novel touches deeply upon the serious and sensitive matters of the Gaelic speaking people of Ireland and how they are viewed by the rest of Ireland Yet it also satirizes the way of living from within the Gaelic community Overall I feel there are two ways you can read this novel You can read it as a laugh out loud satire which lightheartedly and lovingly mocks the ways of the Irish or you can see it as a cry for justice and change in the attitudes of the world in regards to the Gaelic speaking citizens of Ireland Only O’Brien is witty enough to have written something so obscure as famine poverty and humiliation in a humorous way
