'Whilst yet a boy I began to feel the dreadful symptoms of that mental malady, which baffles the skill of medicine, and for which wealth can purchase only temporary alleviation. For this complaint there is no precise English name-but, alas! the foreign term is now naturalized in England.-Among the higher classes, whether in the wealthy, or the fashionable world, who is unacquainted with ennui?' At a young age, the Earl of Glenthorn inherits a title, a large fortune, and estates in England and Ireland. But his enormous wealth provides no relief from his ennui, a state of total apathy and indolence from which travel, extravagant expenditures, and gambling fail to rouse him. But when he decides to visit Glenthorn Castle in Ireland, the young nobleman will finally be shaken from his ennui-by his love for a beautiful woman, his entanglement in the violent Irish Rebellion of 1798, and a shattering secret he will discover about his own past that will profoundly change his life forever. An important early Irish writer and a pioneer of early 19th century European fiction, Maria Edgeworth (1768-1849) was prolific and highly regarded in her own time, but is somewhat neglected today. One of her finest works, Ennui (1809), both an engaging Gothic tale and a satire on the foibles of the wealthy, appears here in a new scholarly edition, which includes an introduction and notes by Robin Runia and Stacey Kikendall, as well as the text of a second classic Edgeworth novella, The Dun.

Essay from the year 2010 in the subject Philosophy - Practical (Ethics, Aesthetics, Culture, Nature, Right, ...), grade: 1,0, University of St Andrews, language: English, abstract: Already in ancient times the image of the Other was negatively connoted with the Foreign imagined as a monster creature, dog-headed or monocular, which has manifested itself in the opposition of the 'civilised' and the 'primitive world'. This construct helps integrate the foreign reality into the own cultural horizon of knowledge. This builds the starting point for the thesis of this essay that suggests that only through the unprejudiced encounter with the Other can the Self truly be. The idea derives from Kant's theory that claims that in order to be ourselves we need to combine with other people (Wohlgemut 2009). Therefore, what is attempted in this essay is to analyse the process of self-awareness in Maria Edgeworth's Ennui (1809), Lady Morgan's The Wild Irish Girl (1806) and in Levinas's The Trace of the Other (1986). In his philosophy of encounter, Levinas promotes the devotion to the Other. For him, the key to ethical commitment lies in the encounter with the Other. As will be shown in the course of this essay, the two discussed Irish national tales develop their narrative around this philosophy of encountering the Other that brings about self-awareness. To set a ground for the analysis, chapter two is dedicated to explore the phenomenon of mythisising the Other. Subsequently, chapter three shall analyse in what way Edgeworth, Lady Morgan and Levinas promote the shedding of the myths that develop around representing the Foreign. The process of overcoming cultural borders shall be looked at in more detail in chapter four. Furthermore, chapter five shall elucidate the national characters displayed in the Irish tales and contrast them to Levinas philosophy. Lastly, chapter six will conclude the essay in a retrospective analysis.

The shiftless Lord Glenthorn has money and a title but suffers from ennui-from boredom. When it is revealed to him that he is not, in fact, an Anglo-Irish earl, but the peasant Christy O'Donoghoe, he must face his changed circumstances in order to provide for a life and future for the woman with whom he has fallen in love. First published in 1809, Ennui is a didactic novel by Maria Edgeworth, who, along with Jane Austen, was a preeminent female novelist of the early nineteenth century.
