BeschreibungFor over thiry years, Northern Ireland has witnessed a profound civil conflict, often very violent, known as "The Troubles". It is perhaps paradoxical that the province is also the home of some of the finest poets writing in English today.In his powerful study, Jonathan Hufstader examines how a number of contemporary Northern Irish poets, including Seamus Heaney, Paul Muldoon, Ciaran Carson and Medbh McGuckian, have explored fully the resources poetic form in their various responses to cultural conflict and political violence.Focusing both on the stylistic features of the poetry and its social and political contexts, Hufstader explores these poets' often conflicting claims to solidarity and artistic integrity, providing an incisive analysis of the vexed relationship between lyric poetry, violence, and society.
