Irish Nationalist’s Life by Nobel Laureate Vargas Llosa Features Materials Drawn from Special Collections

The Dream of the Celt by Nobel Prize in Literature winner Mario Vargas Llosa is a fictional account of the life of Irish Nationalist Sir Roger Casement, hanged by the British government during the First World War. Several of Casement’s manuscripts are in Falvey’s Special Collections; as well, other materials collected by his friend and ally Joseph McGarrity are housed in the McGarrity Collection in Falvey Memorial Library. All of these materials have been digitized and are made available in Villanova’s Digital Library.

Prominently featured on the front cover of the English language translation of The Dream is a photograph of Roger Casement drawn from the McGarrity Collection. Read more on the Blue Electrode blog.
