Memories of a Dublin Childhood. INTRODUCED BY. Hermione Lee. INTRODUCTION. For this reason the book is intimately related to Elizabeth Bowen’s fictional works, all of which are concerned with a world in which rootedness, acquisitions, permanence - the Burkean ‘goods’ - are at risk, and in which a decorous idea of behaviour has degenerated, through Romantic and Gothic influences on feeling, literature and architecture, into ‘the dire period of Personal Life’ and the neurotic.

Still reading, very interesting and informative

I first purchased a battered copy of the first edition (1941) of Elizabeth Bowen's story of her family home without a dust jacket in 1986 in Fred Hanna's junky old bookstore in Dublin when it was down near the Liffey River. It was...and is... a fascinating read. I took the book to show to Mother Kenny at her bookstore in Galway She told me about the second edition...with the important Afterword (1964). I found a really nice copy of the second edition with a dust jacket online about fifteen years later.

Rumor has that Bowen's Court was torn down for the tin in the roof. It was, after all, just a three-storey farmhouse with no indoor plumbing nor electricity. But it had housed nearly a couple of centuries of the Anglo-Irish families of Bowen's that first came to Ireland in 1649.

Elizabeth Bowen (1899-1973), the Anglo-Irish writer of six collections of short stories and nine novels, inherited the family home in 1930. She was the first female owner of the house, the only child of Henry Bowen VI. She invited her London friends from the Bloomsbury group for summer outings. Unable to maintain the large home, she sold it to a neighbor, a farmer, in 1959...thinking he may live in the house. But the farmer demolished it.

"It was a clean end." she writes near the end of the Afterword. "Bowen's Court never lived to be a ruin."

This book is currently in print and available from The Collins Press (1999). It provides wonderful information on the genealogy and history of the Bowen family, who were minor landlords in the north County Cork area. The description of the last garden party at Mitchelstown Castle on 5th August 1914 (the day after England declared war on Germany) is particularly evocative, especially as the occasion set the scene for the demise of the landed ascendancy in mid-Munster. Although not ranked amongst Bowen's best works, it is nonetheless a well written blend of history, folklore and personal narrative.
