About the Author

James Plunkett Kelly was born in Dublin in 1920. His middle name was imposed on him by an enthusiastic parish priest. He went to school in Synge Street and was educated by the Christian Brothers and also at the Dublin Municipal School of Music where he studied the viola and the violin. He also played Gaelic football up to provincial level.

His father died young and James became the breadwinner for the family. He worked for a while as a musician but then got a job as a clerk in the Dublin Gas Company. This led him to join the Workers Union of Ireland, when Trade Unions at the time were neither profitable nor popular. In 1946 to 55, he became Branch Organiser for the Workers Union of Ireland. He reported directly to James Larkin and he worked in the next office. James Larkin and the 1913-14 Dublin Lockout Played a very big role in Plunkett’s writings and he was a great admirer of his.

In 1955 he went to the Soviet Union and on his return was criticised by the church who printed an article in the Catholic Standard newspaper calling for both his and James Larkin’s dismissal. However later he resigned.

Most of Plunkett’s writings are about Dublin and people living in poverty and suffering. He wrote Strumpet City which took ten years to write, as he kept leaving it and going back to writing at different times. During this time he was a producer in RTE. Later this became a TV series, and after this he followed with the novel, The Circus Animals which examined the church in the years immediately after the Second World War.

James Larkin died in 1947, which was the same year Janey Mary was written. Perhaps there was a sense of honour to Larkin in writing it. James Plunkett Kelly died on May 28th 2003 aged 83. He had married, and had three sons and a daughter. http://www.rte.ie/news/2003/0528/38732-plunkettj/http://biography.jrank.org/pages/4666/Plunkett-James.html

History of 1940’s Dublin
Plunkett wrote at a time when poverty was experienced by many people in Dublin. In 1946 the Eire census was 2,955,000 populations in Ireland. It was also the year that the Department of Social Welfare came about. In 1944 the Children’s Allowance Scheme was introduced, for people with three or more children. For many of Dublin’s population (from the middle of the 19th to the middle of the 20th century), were living in what was classed as the worst slums of Europe. People were living in third world conditions with overcrowding, no heating systems, no electricity, no hot water, and just an open fire for heat and cooking. They didn’t even have a bathroom, just a shed out the back that had a toilet, which was used by all the residents in the building (which could run up to a 100 including all the children).

Keeping a fire going was really important as it had so many functions, however not many could afford to keep it going all day and night. Fuel was scarce and expensive, so anything and everything was burned. The men or male children of the house went out looking for firewood and collected coal that may have fallen off a truck or horse and cart, if they had no fuel they would burn old shoes as they would burn for hours.

The houses were very draughty and could be full of rats. Holes were filled with broken glass so the rats and mice couldn’t chew through. Diseases were rampant (Typhoid, Cholera, Diphtheria, Scarlet Fever, Measles) and the biggest killer TB (Tuberculosis) or Galloping Consumption as it was known at the time. This killed children in the 1940’s by the thousands. The other killer was Malnutrition; Dublin’s death rate rivalled that of Calcutta. As many people were so poor they could not afford to hold a funeral for their children, so the child was placed in a little white coffin or box and this was placed in a white pillow case. The men used to bring the coffin up to Glasnevin Cemetery and hand it over to the grave diggers, who buried the child in the ‘Angel Plots’. These are the unmarked graves of nameless children who died. There are over 50,000 of these graves in Glasnevin Cemetery.

Although life was very tough and people suffered every day, there was a great sense of community spirit. Neighbours helped out each other, be it sharing food or clothes and nobody stole off each other. You could leave your key in your door or leave it unlocked. At night for entertainment they would have sing songs or storytelling when the children went to bed. Often the neighbours would attend these sessions and some houses may have a piano that everyone gathered round.

Although it was tough on men to earn a living as most employments were casual. The men would queue and sometimes be picked to go to work or be told they would not be needed that day. If they could not get work in the morning they would generally look for odd jobs throughout the day, anything to bring home some wages. Unemployment was still very high and lots of men went overseas to England or the US to work. They sent wages home or saved for their families to join them.

The women had it toughest of all. Any money that was brought home they were in charge of. They had to make it stretch to pay the rent, buy shopping, clothe everyone, and whatever else the family needed. Their diet mainly consisted of potatoes, onions, cabbage, turnips, occasionally carrots, and the meat would generally be the cheaper items like cow’s heel and sheep’s head. There were no such things as exotic fruits like oranges or bananas back then. Apples were the main fruit.

A woman’s day consisted of cleaning the house, washing clothes, cooking and feeding and looking after their babies. Pregnancy and childbirth was a constant for married women. The husbands expected sex every night and Catholic Church stated it was a mortal sin not to have sex every night. The women were worn out. Many women died during childbirth. www.irishhistorylinks.net/History_Links/Ireland_1940s.html Janey Mary
Janey Mary was written at a time when the above existed in Dublin. The story of Janey Mary is centered round a little four year old girl, who’s mother has sent her out begging around some of the wealthier neighbouring streets. She is so well known for begging that they even know her knock on the door. Most don’t answer they just yell from behind a closed door and those that do, have nothing to give her. She is cold as she only has a little dress on with no shoes and tired from walking the streets. Her small hands she helds together almost as if to pray.

She thought about school and missed going there. Her only friend was the local Priest Father Benedict, who was the only one who didn’t laugh or give out to her when she didn’t know an answer. He used to sit and talk to her and give her sweets. He wanted to know about her, her life and become friends.( Fr. Benedict is considered highly by the people where he lives and works. James Plunkett wrote of him 'who had more intuition than intellect, more genuine affection for children than for learning). As he would talk to her, the teacher would be giving sly looks at them as if jealous of the attention Janey Mary was getting. Later as a punishment she would take the sweets away and give them to the other children who were more neat with their work as a reward. She missed going to school and wished she could be there.

She was also to go up to the local church where the priests give out bread before and after mass, but that day Janey Mary is not feeling well and from lack of food is feeling quite week and dizzy. She forgets to go and by the time she realises the church bells are ringing and it is too late. The priests have already gone into the church and the people who are waiting for bread begin to wander away to come back after the mass.

As she is walking through the demolished houses from the German Bombings her mind started to wander and she remembers playing there. The children played shops and other games there with the debris. In that moment she was swept away to a happy time, filled with glamour, happiness and a childs imagination of all is well with the world and she felt happy. However reality comes back very quickly.

She is afraid to go home because she knows her Mother will send her back out and not believe her when she says that she tried. Of this she is right as all she gets when she arrives home is verbal abuse from her Mother. Her mother is at the depths of despair trying to keep food on the table for her family. As she is a widow, the only breadwinner in the house, is Janey Mary’s older brother who is out selling sticks. Sometimes some of his customers might give him some bread to bring home, Other times her Mother would have some hidden away but not today.

Items are described as old, cracked, and just worn out. This is also the same description of Janey Mary and her Mother. Everything and everyone in that little room is beaten down to the debth of despair. There is no joy in that house, and Janey Mary’s Mother rains down on her about how bad things are for them. She gives Janey Mary a hard time and accuses her of not looking at all. She tells her to get back out and to bring the bag with her. Altough Janey Mary is weak and almost passing out with the hunger she never once moans or complains. It’s almost as if she knows better.

When she gets down to the church the mass is still going on and only a few have gathered. She is cold but as more join the queue she warms up a little. Everyone that is there are in the same boat, all poor, starving and pitifull. All Janey Mary can think about is her friend and saviour Father Benedict.

The priests have a table out on the steps to place the bread on when the mass is over and two of the Brothers watch the people form an orderly queue. Janey Mary can hardly see now and becomes conscious of those around her. Someone lets out a scream to mind the child as she is pressed against the wall by men and women all standing over her. Everyone is desperate for food and at first they are argueing with each other for a place, but they all seam too tired to argue and eventually the noise settles down to just people whispering. They all seam to be saying the same thing, that there won’t be much bread going with so many there. Almost as if they don’t want each other to hear, yet they all know.

There is a man beside her with hob nail studs on the soles of his shoes. Janey Mary becomes fixated on them and conscious of her tiny bare feet beside them. She cannot take her focus off them and as she is lost in thought the doors of the church open and everyone pushes forward. Suddenly as she is being pushed she loses her footing and a man tries to grab her but fails. Through the croud she can see Fr Benedict and very gently she calls out his name, just as she falls and gets trampled on.

When she wakes up she is in a nice warm room. Surrounded by a blanket, heat, and nice things around her. At first she panics as she remembers the bread and as she tries to speak everything sounds noisy. Everything is cosy here and she knows she is safe cause as she drifts in and out of consciousness she hears and see’s her friend and knows he will take care of her.

The other brother says to Father Benedict “You were very quick, Is she badly hurt? To me this implies even though Janey Mary had only whispered his name as she called him, He heard her. Almost as if he is her Guardian Angel there to look out for her.

Father Benedict replies “Only her feet, you can see the print of the nails” James Larkin said this during the Dublin Lockout in 1913 that “Christ will no longer be crucified on the streets of Dublin”. Here we see hope with Plunketts own interest in Larkin’s ideas. Class notes, 2013, The short story Janey Mary, English Literature, Liberties College.

Conclusion

From the very first time I read this as a child, it is a story I never forgot. No matter how much I read it , I still have tears and a ache in my heart when I think of that little girl. It brings up many emotions in me that I find hard to describe as I feel if I start I won’t be able to finish. There is so much pain out there in people that have and are growing up like Janey Mary, that are suffering every day to keep a roof over their heads, food on the table and heat in their homes. Most children in this day and age don’t go out begging and wouldn’t understand this life but there are many who can. They should be in school and safe and secure, but alas not everyone is that fortunate.

It is clear to see that Janey Mary is a short story set in the poverty od Dublin in the 1940’s and that Plunkett was also influenced in his writing by James Larkin and his ideas in this story.

Jane

...Ms.Dotson English 2 24 April 2012 Jane Austen’s Accomplishments Jane Austen was such a remarkable author. Growing up in such a judgmental period gave her many ideas due to her many stories coming from personal experiences. One thing is she stayed true to herself and others. Jane’s significance on her novels made her the great author of her decade. Jane Austen is such a loving person who shows her love through her actions by her novels, the way she treats her family, and how she puts others first. Austen was born on December 16th, 1775 to Reverend George Austen and Cassandra Austen. She lived her life in Steventon rectory with her close knit family. Her parents had seven children with Jane being the last. There were five boys and two girls. With her only having one sister name Cassandra they became best friends. Out of all her brothers she was closer to Henry. Even though she loved both of her parents very dearly she was more of a daddy’s girl. During Jane’s childhood, open learning, dialogue and creativity was the key to there life. Her parents wanted there children to express their self and be creative as possible. Education was so important in Jane’s family that her father took neighborhood children in their home to teach them. Jane’s house had a huge library full of literature.

Jane

...Case Study: Jane By: Rachel Duncan Jane, as a young child, had fallen victim to the malicious physical abuse of the one person she counted on the most in life, her father. After Jane was grown and her father wasn’t able to physically abuse her anymore, he began using monetary incentives in order to continue to control her life. The only normal relationship she ever had with another adult was with her aunt. The relationship with Jane’s aunt was not a steady one, because of the distance between where they lived. Jane eventually met and fell in love with a man that she soon married. 3 years into their marriage, she found herself in yet another physically abusive scenario and then becomes pregnant. As a child, Jane spent all of her time tip-toeing around her father, trying to please him in any way she could. She tried day in and day out to make her father happy, to no avail. She eventually realized that no matter what she did to please him, she would never be good enough. These actions and upbringings have taught Jane nothing more than to associate ones love for another, with ones fear of them. She will carry these teachings with her forever, and they will greatly impact her future encounters with love and trust. She will also instill these beliefs in her child, as it is likely he/she will be exposed to the heinous abuse that, Jane endured as a child. I believe that Jane’s actions will continue to lead her down her current path of injustice and exploitation. She......

Jane Eyre

...GNST 200 Term Paper Jane Eyre: Charlotte Brontë One of the most brilliant works of Charlotte Bronte, Jane Eyre was published in 1847 during a time when women were considered social embellishments, and nothing more than offspring bearers for that matter. She defied these beliefs by doing something no women did in that time, write. This book was revolutionary, especially since the release of Jane Austen’s works, which had a lot more of a happy ending feel that were published a century before. Charlotte Brontë and her sisters Emily and Anne, wrote novels that were much more dark and mysterious. Jane Eyre became one of the most successful novels of its era. This novel is set in the early decades of the nineteenth century, and depicts themes such as social class, religion, and gender relations. The novel is a hybrid of three genres: a romantic novel, a bildungsroman novel, and a gothic novel. Each of these genres are used in Jane Eyre, and rightfully so. They help to tell the story of Jane Eyre’s life in the most mysterious, sometimes supernatural, and retrospective way. I believe that Charlotte Brontë depicted her life through the novel of Jane Eyre, she did this by using her own experiences in life, namely through some key developments from her life translated into Jane Eyre’s life. Jane Eyre and Charlotte Brontë embody each others lives. This is clear through all the similarities between the novel and real life. Some examples of these are: both Jane and Charlotte being......

Jane Eyre

...What has Jane Eyre learnt at Lowood? Importance of Education Jane greets this new stage of her life with excitement, as it represents an escape from the family home where she has suffered such unhappiness. She has realised from an early age that for a poor and friendless girl like herself, life offers few possibilities: " ‘If I had anywhere else to go, I should be glad to leave it; but I can never get away from Gateshead till I am a woman’ " (chapter 3). Thus Mrs Reed, in her haste to be rid of the responsibility of a child she so dislikes, unwittingly hands Jane a priceless asset for the Victorian woman: an education. Harsh Conditions at Lowood Jane soon finds that the conditions at Lowood are unforgiving. The school is run by a Mr Brocklehurst, who believes that the lower class girls who constitute his pupils are unworthy of kind or generous treatment: “it was bitter cold, and I dressed as well as I could for shivering, and washed when there was a basin at liberty, which did not occur soon, as there was but one basin to six girls, on the stands down the middle of the room” (chapter 5). Food is also in short supply, “a thin oaten cake shared into fragments” or inedible porridge, “a nauseous mess; burnt porridge is almost as bad as rotten potatoes; famine itself soon sickens over it. The spoons were moved slowly: I saw each girl taste her food and try to swallow it; but in most cases the effort was soon relinquished. Breakfast was over, and none had......

...In the Jane case, the young girl was being abused by her father. Because no care was taken in explaining why she was being punished so she began to associate her fear of abuse with love. As this connection grew, so did her acceptance of the situation. He made her feel wrong about every decision she made. She began to over think every situation to try and please the man. Her aunt popped in and out of the picture with positivity and encouragement. As she began to mature and see the situation through her aunt’s 3rd person perspective, she started to question her father’s actions. She gets married to an abusive man, and accepts it. • 1b. Jane started accepting her father’s questionable ways because of the association of the two most powerful emotions expressible; fear and love. He constantly made her feel wrong for her every action.

As she got older she adapted her father’s ways, the young woman began to use them against her father in order to get what she wanted.

Jane Austen

...JANE AUSTEN An English author widely read in the nineteen-hundreds, was Jane Austen. Although Austen’s works were widely read and popular in her lifetime, she published her works anonymously. All of her books are mainly about bright, young heroines in courtship and finally marriage, even though Austen herself never married. Her best-known books include Pride and Prejudice. Virginia Woolf, a renown critic in Austen’s time called Austen "the most perfect artist among women." Austen’s position as part of the upper class of the early nineteenth century British society gave her not only a subject for her novels but also the time needed for writing. Jane Austen was born in Stevenson, Hampshire, as the second daughter and seventh child in a family of eight. As a young woman Jane enjoyed dancing and she attended balls in many of the great houses of the neighborhood. She loved the country, and enjoyed long country walks. As a result, when she wrote, many of her works are set in the English countryside. Life was going great, therefore it came as a shock when Mr. Austen decided to retire and move with his wife and two daughters to Bath. Bath is where two of Austen’s books are set. The next four years were difficult ones for Jane. She disliked the busy town and missed her Steventon life. After her father's death in 1805, his widow and daughters also suffered financial difficulties and were forced to rely on the charity of the Austen sons. Most of Jane’s novel characters are upper......

Stephen F Austin

...Stephen F. Austin Often when individuals reflect on the history of Texas, many great names with acts of heroism come to mind. However, when asked to explain the interpretation, and accomplishments these heroes achieved, we draw a blank. One hero in particular is Stephen F. Austin. This individual has acquired the title as "Father of Texas" and yet many people don't understand the impact and importance this man was, and still is, on the state of Texas. Stephen F. Austin was born on November 3, 1793. His father, Moses Austin and mother, Mary Brown, set high expectations for him since birth. Through the years, Austin traveled from place to place due to his Fathers work and acquired knowledge of his father's business, a mining operation. At the age of ten, Austin was driven to school and ultimately graduated from college. He had spent some time working for his father and spending some time in the military. Stephen was discharged from the military as a senior level sergeant upon completion of his term. During this time in Stephens life, his father, Moses, departed to San Antonio to petition for a land grant from the Spanish territory. The land grant gave authorization for 300 families with a total of 200,000 acres to be separated amongst themselves. Before completion of the land grant, Moses Austin passed away. This left Stephen to follow his father's dreams and continue to pursue the colonization of a territory from the Spanish. Austin had a difficult time getting the land...

...in the 1840s, with Charles Dickens, thatthe novel again reached the popularity it hadenjoyed in the 1740s. Between 1847 and 1850appeared  Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, VanityFair  and  David Copperfield. In 1860, Dickens wasstill at his peak, Mrs Gaskell and Trollope were going strong, and George Eliot hadbegun to publish. Poetry was popular, but prose more popular. The popularity of broadlyrealistic novels seems to go with the broadening basis of middle-class democracy.For the sake of clarity, this cornucopia of fiction is treated author by author, at theexpense of chronology, interrelation, context. Dickens coincidentally published his first novel in the year of Victoria’saccession. Although the Brontë sisters wrote ten years later, they are here treated first, not in chronological order. Their novelsare closer to the genres of Romantic poetry than to the realism of the mainstream novel; fantasy and family are more relevantto their work than the currents of national[p. 273]history. This also allows Mrs Gaskell, Dickens and Thackeray, who are closer to historical developments, to be taken together.
