In Collection: Letters of Sean O'Casey to Mai McCarthy
Description: O'Casey replies to a letter from McCarthy and tells her his wife, Eileen, had a fall in which she broke her wrist; he says he is finished the proof of 'Sunset and Evening Star' and has finished typing 'The Bishop's Bonfire', a new play which presents themes similar to those in a recently published book 'The Vanishing Irish' by John A. O'Brien. He exhorts McCarthy to look after her health, to rest every afternoon, and discusses the tendency of the Irish to neglect the body. He also mentions that he will have to move from the house he has lived in for 16 years, as the landlord has given them notice to quit. He speaks disparagingly of the Irish Academy of Letters; and at the end talks about sperm whales and the deadly sting of the sea creature called the Portugese man-of-war.
