POESIE

XVIIIE SIECLE

Résumé : 'The Humble Petition of Cornelius O Clummogan, the Famous Poor Scholar, to the Priest of the Parish' by the Co. Roscommon poest, Dr. Dominick Kelly, throws unexpected light on several aspects of mid-eighteenth century Irish culture and literature? First published for the metropolitan readership of Hoey's Dublin Mercury in 1770, the poem reveals itself at odds with contemporary English metrical conventions, being xritten in rhyming couplets that draw on the long, flexible line of contemporary Irish-language verse, employing an accentual metre, as distinct from the syllabic metre of elite bardic poetry. Interplay with contemporary Irish language conventions is evident not only in versification but also in a concluding brief parody of the aisling, in which a 'vision' of a woman promises an amelioration of present lamentable circumstances. As notable in content as in form, the 'Humble Petition' is the first significant representation in print of the 'poor scholar', the itinerant student who travelled from school to school, dependent on the hospitality of the local families. Such students, often aspiring teachers and sometimes poets, were associated with the hedge-school culture of eighteenth and early-nineteenth century Ireland but made their best-known appearance in print only around sixty years later, in the work of Thomas Crofton Croker and William Carleton. The poem also offers a surprisingly detailed setting of that part of Co. Roscommon close to the River Suck, home to Kelly himself.
