Northern Irish Poetry free pdf Taking a different approach from other studies of Northern Irish poetry which locate it within an Irish or British literary history, this book aims to elucidate its powerful transcultural dynamics, with specific reference to its American connections. Thus, through discussion of the ways in which major Northern Irish poets (Ciaran Carson, Padraic Fiacc, John Hewitt, Seamus Heaney, Michael Longley, Derek Mahon, Geraroid MacLochlainn, Louis MacNeice, Medbh McGuckian, John Montague, Paul Muldoon, Frank Ormsby) have been influenced by America, this study shows how Northern Irish poetry overspills national borders, complicating and enriching itself through cross-cultural interaction and hybridity, or struggles to preserve a sense of unique identity and local attachment in the face of globalization, interstitial migrancy, and postmodern skepticism.
