Roger Casement “The trial of Sir Roger Casement” Literary discussion animation

07 Jun

Heres a virtual movie of an excerpt from the trial of the renowned human rights campaigner and Irish Nationalist Sir Roger Casement “The Speech from the Dock” that he made at his trial for “High Treason” on the 29th June 1916. Roger David Casement (Irish: RuairĂ­ Mac Easmainn; 1 September 1864 — 3 August 1916), (Sir Roger Casement CMG between 1911 and his execution for treason in August 1916, when he was stripped of his British honours),was an Irish patriot, poet, revolutionary and nationalist. He was a British consul by profession, famous for his reports and activities against human rights abuses in the Congo and Peru, but better known for his dealings with Germany before Ireland’s Easter Rising in 1916. An Irish nationalist and Parnellite in his youth, he worked in Africa for commercial interests and latterly in the service of Britain. However, the Boer War and his consular investigation into atrocities in the Congo led Casement to anti-Imperialist and ultimately Irish Republican and separatist political opinions. Casement was born near Dublin, living in very early childhood at Doyle’s Cottage, Lawson Terrace, Sandycove His Protestant father, Captain Roger Casement of (The King’s Own) Regiment of Light Dragoons, was the son of a bankrupt Belfast shipping merchant (Hugh Casement) who later moved to Australia. Captain Casement served in the 1842 Afghan campaign. Casement’s mother Anne Jephson of Dublin (whose origins are obscure) had him rebaptised secretly as a Roman

Heres a virtual movie of the great American poetesss Emily Dickinson (1830 – 1886) reading her poem numbered 1760 “Elysium is as far as to” The manuscript of this poem can be dated to around 1858. In Greek Mythology, Elysium is the home of the blessed in the afterlife Originally in Greek mythology, beautiful meadows or plains, or islands of the blest, located in the far west by the banks of Ocean. There certain heroes of the fourth race who never experienced death were said to dwell in perfect happiness ruled by Rhadamanthus. The titans after being reconciled with Zeus also lived there under the rule of Kronos. Pindar holds that all who have passed blamelessly through life three times live there in bliss. … Emily Elizabeth Dickinson (December 10, 1830 — May 15, 1886) was an American poet. Born in Amherst, Massachusetts, to a successful family with strong community ties, she lived a mostly introverted and reclusive life. After she studied at the Amherst Academy for seven years in her youth, she spent a short time at Mount Holyoke Female Seminary before returning to her family’s house in Amherst. Thought of as an eccentric by the locals, she became known for her penchant for white clothing and her reluctance to greet guests or, later in life, even leave her room. Most of her friendships were therefore carried out by correspondence. Although Dickinson was a prolific private poet, fewer than a dozen of her nearly eighteen hundred poems were published during her lifetime.[2
