A nest of simple folk concerns two main antagonists-Leo Donnel, a type of the wild, imaginative Celt, ineffectual, a revolutionary, a gun-runner, a Fenian, a rebel; and his opposite, Johnnie Hussey, a type of the tough, hard-working peasant from whom has come the modern Irish townsman, all prudence and no imagination. In their strange story one sees the struggle of modern Ireland on the one hand for bread and on the other ideals. Collector’s Item
