Castle Corner

By Joyce Cary

Violent evictions in Donegal, fashionable drawing-rooms in London, compromise and degradation in a West African trading station – Joyce Cary’s panoramic novel follows the fortunes of the Anglo-Irish Corner family as they contend with a changing world at the nineteenth century’s turn.

Although not published until 1938, Castle Corner has been widely acclaimed as comparable with the best nineteenth-century family chronicles. With a diverse and colourful cast of characters from many walks of life, it traces the shifting fortunes of the Anglo-Irish Corner family towards the end of the Victorian era, fortunes that are influenced as much by the contrasting characters of the protagonists as by the social and political upheaval of the time.
