    malcontent maturity?

    Hi, guys... I don't understand what "malcontent maturity" mean.

    What does it mean by that? And in this context, does Ireland mean

    the country belonging to United Kingdom?

    Thank you for your answer in advance..



    As a young man, he regarded France as Arcadia, but in his "malcontent

    maturity", he considered visiting anyplace outside of "Ireland" to be

    martyrdom.

    "Malcontent maturity" = As a mature man who is more cynical about life.

    Ireland means Ireland, the island to the west of the United Kingdom. Without knowing who this is about, it is not possible to say if it is Ireland when it was ruled from England, or the independent Ireland [Eire].
