McCarthy, Justin Huntly: The Proud Prince

Justin Huntly McCarthy (1859 – 20 March 1936) was an Irish author and nationalist politician. He was a Member of Parliament from 1884 to 1892, taking his seat in the House of Commons of the United Kingdom.

McCarthy wrote various novels, plays, poetical pieces and short histories. He was briefly married to the actress Cissie Loftus.

Among other works, he wrote biographies of Sir Robert Peel, Pope Leo XIII and William Ewart Gladstone. In 1889 he published prose translations of 466 quatrains of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam.

In 1893, he translated some Gazels from Divan of Hafiz, the 14th century Persian poet, which was published in a 152 page volume by David Nutt. 1000 copies were made, 800 for England and 200 for America.

Quote:
The girl stood on the summit of the hill looking down the white highway that stretched to Syracuse. The morning sun shone hotly; sky and sea and earth seemed to kindle and quicken in the ecstasy of heat, setting free spirits of air and earth and water, towards whom the girl’s spirit stirred in sympathy. All about her beauty flamed luxuriant. At her feet the secrets of the world were written in wild flowers, the wild flowers of Sicily, which redeem the honor of the wellnigh flowerless land of Greece.
