Reviews

"Hufstader's own elegant writing conveys some of the lyric power found in the poetry." -- Choice


"Ambitious, provocative, and ultimately disturbing.... Should ignite lively debate in the years to come." -- Irish Literary Supplement


"A searching, honest, and impressive analysis of some of the best poetry written in the English language in our time." -- Jonathan Allison, series editor


"Shows how a number of contemporary Northern Irish poets -- Seamus Heaney, Derek Mahon, michael Longley, Paul Muldoon, Tom Paulin, Ciaran Carson, and Medbh McGuckian -- explore the resources of language and poetic form in their various responses to cultural conflict and political violence." -- McCormick Messenger


"Successfully repositions the focus onto the poetry rather than the historical forces working around the poetry." -- South Atlantic Review
