Her own identity, which cannot nor should not be separated from her national identity within Ireland and her larger identity within the Anglo-Irish Union, is in contention with itself and the time in which she exists.
How the British imperialist mentality was and is able to pervade the walls of the Castle and into the landscapes and policies of its colonial enterprises is through the ability of the ideals to trickle down into the fictionist form of the novel and present themselves to the population as possible and real. The goal of finding place within novels and consequently in reality has a heavy presence in fiction.
Castle Rackrent by Maria Edgeworth
Over time there was a movement from English literature to literature in English, and Castle Rackrent is a part of that movement. In doing so, it is a part of the redefining of home, of identity and of nationality across cultural and linguistic borders. The colonial subject fantasizes about being in two places at the one time, about being both colonizer and colonized. The colonizer is caught up in a fantasy of power while simultaneously suffering a paranoia of persecution.
His own desire to mimic the Protestant Ruling Class without admitting to such is what grants him the power to play both colonizer and colonized. Though comical, the book hints at issues that are terrifying and looming in what was the current political instability of the time. Edgeworth is suggesting that not only were the Irish misusing the language, which needed to be reformed by the Glossary, but also the land that sprouted the roots of their voices. At the same time, the narration questions the ability for the Protestant Ruling class to govern the Irish lands.
Ultimately, and in conjunction with most of the reversals Edgeworth plays upon within the novel, the conclusion is found in the first pages of her preface:. Barry, Florence Valentine. Maria Edgeworth: Chosen Letters. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, Bhabba, Homi K. Blackwell Publishers.
