Modern Irish poetry : an anthology by Peter Mackay( Book )

The comparative study of the literatures of Ireland and Scotland has emerged as a distinct and buoyant field in recent years. This collection of new essays offers the first sustained comparison of modern Irish and Scottish poetry, featuring close readings of texts within broad historical and political contextualisation. Playing on influences, crossovers, connections, disconnections and differences, the 'affinities' and 'opposites' traced in this book cross both Irish and Scottish poetry in many directions. Contributors include major scholars of the new 'archipelagic' approach, as well as leading Irish and Scottish poets providing important insights into current creative practice. Poets discussed include W. B. Yeats, Hugh MacDiarmid, Sorley MacLean, Louis MacNeice, Edwin Morgan, Douglas Dunn, Seamus Heaney, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Michael Longley, Medbh McGuckian, Nuala ni Dhomhnaill, Don Paterson and Kathleen Jamie. This book is a major contribution to our understanding of poetry from these islands in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries
Poetry & posterity by Edna Longley( Book )

11 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 234 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of critical essays marks a move back from Irish culture and politics to poetry itself as the critic's central concern. It considers how poets are read and received at different times and in different contexts, by academics as well as by a wider readership, and from Irish and American viewpoints. -- Publisher description

Multi-culturalism : the view from the two Irelands by Edna Longley( Book )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two of Ireland's most outspoken critics and cultural commentators, Edna Longley from the North and Declan Kiberd from the South, put forward views on the constrasting directions in which the two societies on the island are moving. Professor Longley asks whether Northerners will increasingly identify with Northern Ireland as a shared point of reference. Will they develop a more flexible sense of their relations with the Republic and a post-devolution Britain? Professor Kiberd asks whether a newly prosperous and confident Republic is genuinely embracing multi-culturalism. Is it moving towards a post-nationalist society which commits its citizens to a truly pluralist vision? What does it mean to be Irish at the turn of the twenty-first century?"--Jacket
Incorrigibly plural : Louis MacNeice and his legacy by Fran Brearton( Book )

6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Illuminating the work of a writer whose achievement and influence is increasingly recognized as central to modern poetry in English, this record is a celebration of the diversity and vitality of Louis MacNeice's writing. With contributions by fellow poets and critics-such as Neil Corcoran, Paul Farley, Leontia Flynn, Derek Mahon, Peter McDonald, and Clair Wills among others-it features a memoir by MacNeice's son, the late Dan MacNeice, and various biographical accounts. More than a retrospective work of criticism, this compilation also offers insight into MacNeice's complex political awareness

Under the same moon : Edward Thomas and the English lyric by Edna Longley( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A hundred years ago Edward Thomas was killed in the Battle of Arras (April 1917). The reputation of his poetry has never been higher. Edna Longley has already edited Thomas's poems and prose. She now marks his centenary, and adds to the growing field of Thomas studies, with this close reading of his poetry. Longley places the lyric poem at the centre of Thomas's poetry and of his thinking about poetry. Drawing on Thomas's own remarkable critical writings, she argues that his importance to emergent 'modern poetry' has yet to be fully appreciated
