This is an innovative and accessible study of contemporary Northern Irish poetry in the light of current debates about postmodernism, poetry and politics, and the figure of woman in Irish political discourse. Close readings of the work of Tom Paulin, Medbh McGuckian, and Paul Muldoon focus on the "improper" elements of the poetry: the refusal of a sense of home, the disruption of "traditional" poetic form, and the sexual narratives told.

About the Author:

Clair Wills is at University of Essex.

Review:


"Wills's book touches on areas of importance for readers of what might be called the post-Heaney generation of Northern Irish poets, and it airs problems about the place of the feminine or the private in this work which could be of some significance."--Irish Review
