They cycled slowly along the village street with the sun behind them and their shadows, black on the ground, always that unattainable length in front of them.

Preview of Captains and the Kings Summary:. One theme is the greed of those who have, as opposed to the ignorance and credulity of those who have not. The story is of Joseph Armagh's revenge on a world that forced him to deny his own identity as an Irishman and as a "Roman" Catholic. By Joe's own characterization, mankind is the most selfish species ever "spewed out of hell," and the novel is consistent with this vision.
