    Despite the lack of surface charm, Brennan was very Irish indeed. Frank O'Connor was the cutest of the lot, perhaps, as well as the most successful. Min is of that class of people to whom safety lies in being still, whose altruism is sparsely coated selfishness, and whose exercise of control over her own life means that she is rudely buffeted by the routine activities of others. It is a great joy to me to have these all together.

    The third group of stories is about Delia and Martin Bagot. In the first Rose Derdon story, A Young Girl Can Spoil Her Chances, we get quickly to one of her defining events: the death of her father, two days before her tenth birthday, and her sense that that drop of time between these two major events has disrupted her ever since. Before there was Maeve Brennan, there was the house. Brennan is a rare wonder, and it is only a pity that her work did not take its place sooner among the great Irish writers of the twentieth century.

    But once you had said that you had said it all. These masterly stories trace the patterns of love in three middle-class Dublin families, patterns as intricate and various as Irish lace. She did not have to become a bag lady for her work to be revived, though that possibly helped too. But by and large all of the action, such as it is, remains confined within the same four walls.

Never mind, never mind, never mind, no blame to you nor to me nor to anybody, the mouth said, only fill me. Brennan is always an onlooker in these sketches, never a participant. This gives them a wave-like quality that, combined with the many long, interior monologues, calls to mind Virginia Woolf.

So her grim observations of these misery-making conditions double as an indictment of the institution of marriage itself. The characters are emotionally unreachable and often lead stagnant lives where everything remains much the same. She went from where she was to the place where she was going, and then back again to the place where she had been.

Canon Candidacy Brennan was not on the curriculum for Irish schools when I was growing up. Everywhere in her fiction, and in her nonfiction as well, architecture and furnishings and other inanimate articles are more than backdrops to, or extensions of, the people she writes about; they are active conspirators, witnesses, bulwarks.
