9781930630352: The New North: Contemporary Poetry from Northern Ireland

The New North is a landmark anthology of contemporary poetry from Northern Ireland with a wide-ranging introduction that gives the reader valuable historical perspective into political and cultural contexts. A brief selection of classic poems by more established authors introduces the featured poets (born between 1956 and 1975); together they represent the past and future of poetry in this small but fertile culture. Through descent and pastiche, influence and departure, the younger poets respond to the North’s rich poetic tradition, as well as to previous political and social realities, yet reveal that other styles and subjects are equally important to their art. Featuring poetry from Cathal Ó Searcaigh, Jean Bleakney, Chris Agee, Moyra Donaldson, Gary Allen, Damian Smyth, Andy White, Matt Kirkham, Gearóid Mac Lochlainn, Frank Sewell, Paul Grattan, Sinéad Morrissey, Alan Gillis, Leontia Flynn, and Nick Laird, as well as classic poems by Seamus Heaney, Derek Mahon, Ciaran Carson, Paul Muldoon, Medbh McGuckian, and Michael Longley.

Review:

'Wake Forest University Press continues its impressive dedication to Irish poetry in all shapes and forms with 'The New North: Contemporary Poetry from Northern Ireland' edited by Chris Agee. [...] Given this collection's title, it should not be surprising that, while politics and 'The Troubles' are featured, many other topics and themes emerge, from technology and globalization to Ireland's place within Europe. In this sense, the poems and poets offer an insightful, lyrical look into the psyche of 21st-century Northern Ireland' --Irish America

'...an impressive anthology edited by Chris Agee and recently published by the premier house for Irish poetry in this country, Wake Forest University Press. The collection intersplices, with the work of younger poets, several 'seniors,' from Heaney to his students Paul Muldoon and Medbh McGuckian, as well as Ciaran Carson, whose signature twining, long-lined narratives are continued in his collection 'For All We Know'.' --Book Pages

'Blending the contemporary and the classic, 'The New North: Contemporary Poetry from Northern Ireland' attempts to paint a vivid picture through verse of Northern Ireland, its politics, its people, and of course, its poetry. Succeeding in its mission with excellent work, 'The New North' is a must for anyone who wants to better understand the country.' --James A. Cox, The Midwest Book Review
