Carleton, William

▪ Irish author
born Feb. 20, 1794, Prillisk, County Tyrone, Ire.
died Jan. 30, 1869, Dublin

      prolific writer who realistically portrayed the life of the rural Irish.

      Born the youngest of 14 children on a small farm, Carleton learned to appreciate the Irish heritage from his father, a man well-versed in the rich folklore of the area. At first a village tutor, he published a two-volume collection of sketches, Traits and Stories of the Irish Peasantry (1830), which describes the Ireland of the 19th-century tenant farmer. The writings that followed—e.g., Tales of Ireland (1834), Fardorougha the Miser (1839), and The Black Prophet (1847)—deal with such rural problems as the land question, secret patriotic societies, and famine. The Black Prophet, a powerful, almost Gothic novel, was published at the height of the Irish Potato Famine of 1845–49. Although filled with local colour, his powerful stories had wide appeal and were translated into French, German, and Italian.
