"Gathering together over three hundred poems by writers such as Francis Ledwidge, W. B. Yeats and Seamus Heaney, this groundbreaking anthology records the thoughts and experiences of Ireland's poets as soldiers, observers, protestors and mourners. From patriotism to anger, passion to compassion, hope to regret, Earth Voices Whispering embraces the complex reality of a rich and unique period in Irish poetry."--BOOK JACKET."
