The Great War in Irish poetry : W.B. Yeats to Michael Longley by Fran Brearton( Book )
13 editions published between 2000 and 2003 in English and held by 461 libraries worldwide
"The Great War in Irish Poetry explores the impact of the First World War on the work of W. B. Yeats, Robert Graves, and Louis MacNeice in the period 1914-45, and on three contemporary Northern Irish poets, Derek Mahon, Seamus Heaney, and Michael Longley. Its concern is to place their work, and memory of the Great War, in the context of Irish culture and politics in the twentieth century. The historical background to Irish involvement in the Great War is explained, as are the ways in which some of the events of 1912-20 - the Home Rule crisis, the loss of the Titanic, the Battle of the Somme, the Easter Rising - still reverberate in the politics of remembrance in Northern Ireland."--BOOK JACKET

Reading Michael Longley by Fran Brearton( Book )
7 editions published in 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 241 libraries worldwide
"Michael Longley has been called 'one of the finest lyric poets of our century' (John Burnside). This study is the first full-length assessment of his work, and looks in turn at all the major collections he has published over the past 40 years, and at the extraordinary growth of his reputation and influence." "In this book, Fran Brearton draws on letters, manuscripts, published and personal interviews with Michael Longley, as well as on his memoir, Tuppenny Stung, and his recent researches into his father's military career. She shows how his poetry is shaped by the dislocation and tensions of his English parentage and Irish upbringing, making him one of the most imaginatively various and formally inventive poets writing today."--Jacket
