This title will be welcomed by academics and others who want to take a deep dive into the literature of Norther Ireland. The context within history and politics is explored in the introduction before moving into the other chapters. These explore works of both poetry and prose. Readers will discover new writers along with those of whom they have already heard. They will also leave the book understanding its title.
This is a book to be read by those who want to understand more about the complexities of Northern Ireland. Insights come from the writers.
