The end of February is the earliest I have ever seen. Six cars had been engaged, and, feeling she was done for, she went to The untilled field book church, hoping it would fall down on her. He is going to take her to the lecture on poultry-keeping at the school-house. The women had collected into one corner, and the priest was walking up and down, his hands thrust into the pockets of his overcoat. The power of the parish priest is evident, as is Moore's lack of respect for this figure, but the parishioners do not exhibit dog-like obedience at all times. John Gogarty said: "It was impossible to be a friend of his, because he was incapable of gratitude".

He could not persuade himself that it was right for him to allow the Kavanaghs to continue a dissolute life of drinking and dancing. These are gently paced stories that create pictures of country life. Everything is impure in their eyes, in their impure eyes, whereas I saw nothing in you but loveliness. Now, I don't know you all, for I am getting an old man, and I don't often come up this way.

He could see they were crumbling, and he believed the architect was right, and that it would be better to build a new church. He still called it his Virgin and Child, but it had never been a Virgin and Child in the sense suggested by the capital letters, for The untilled field book had not yet put on the drapery that would convert a naked girl and her baby into the Virgin and Child. There isn't a man in the parish that would not be in Peter's place to-day if he only dared. The people are pretty much in poverty over much of rural Ireland. If he wishes to make me his wife—" When Kate gave him her hand there was a mist in his eyes, and he stood trembling before her. Carmody sees the clergy as the source of Ireland's troubles, and as his anticlerical viewpoint becomes more publicly pronounced, his marriage suffers.

George Moore was allegedly influenced by Ivan Turgenev's collection of short stories, A Sportsman's Sketches, a book focused on the plight of the Russian peasantry at the hands of landowners in a feudal system that was nearing its close.

Both works center around the lives of oppressed rural people in a time of great economic and social change. I especially liked The Window although it's called something else in other editions.

Do you? I could see that he recognised me at once. He could see that she was pleased at being spoken to. The priest asked him if matters were mending, and if his sister showed any signs of wishing to be married.
