Dark Pages – Roger Casement and the Black Diaries

May 6, 2013

Here‘s a link to an article on Roger Casement and the infamous ‘Black Diaries’. The author doesn’t offer an opinion on the much-debated subject of their authenticity. What’s interesting is the analysis of how Casement has been portrayed in literature: W. B. Yeats’ poem, “The Ghost of Roger Casement”, W. G. Sebald in his book The Rings of Saturn and Mario Vargas Llosa’s novel The Dream of the Celt.
