Abstract:

"The Indignant Muse (the title comes from a poem by Roger Casement) is a powerful collection of poems and songs that nurtured and reflected Ireland's cultural and political revolution between the formation of the Gaelic League and the end of Civil War. The Easter Rising is central in the story, flanked by the founding of the Irish Volunteers, Dublin Lockout and Howth gun-running, including the two wars in which Ireland's soldiers fought - the Boer War and First World War - and the vigorous opposition to Irish involvement in both. Resistance to recruitment and conscription, the Home Rule controversy, the rise of Sinn Féin and eclipse of the Irish Parliamentary Party are encompassed, with the War of Independence and the Civil War marking Ireland's coming-of-age through armed struggle."
