The Socialist Review: The Trial of Roger Casement

  • Fionnuala Doran

    Press/Media: Press / Media

    Description

    While being one of the most compelling and interesting figures around the events of the 1916 Easter Rising, Roger Casement has not always dined at the top table of Irish rebels.

    His homosexuality and his work for the British Empire while at the Foreign Office have meant that he has sat uneasily among some nationalists.

    This entertaining, well-produced and timely graphic novel is symptomatic of recent moves to rehabilitate him.
