Famine by Desmond Egan( Book )

11 editions published between 1997 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ces poèmes reviennent sur le thème le traumatisme de la grande famine qui au milieu du XIXème siècle, conjuguée à la politique menée par l'Angleterre dans le pays, a conduit près de deux millions d'Irlandais à l'exil et a fait un million de victimes, emportées par la faim, le froid, les maladies. Comme il en a l'habitude, Desmond Egan, dans une suite de dix poèmes (et un épilogue) à l'écriture directe, voire rugueuse, mêle les temps et les angles de perception : le tout constitue alors une sorte de prière compassionnelle tout autant qu'un cri de colère recommencé, dans la tonalité et l'esprit de "Holocauste de l'automne".
