About this book

Northern Irish Poetry and Theology argues that theology shapes subjectivity, language and poetic form, and provides original studies of three internationally acclaimed poets: Seamus Heaney, Michael Longley and Derek Mahon.

Gail McConnell is Lecturer in English at Queen's University Belfast, UK. She has published in The Irish Review and contributed to The Oxford Handbook of Modern Irish Poetry.

Reviews

“McConnell skilfully provides a compelling analysis of a wide range of poetry from each of the writers, contrasting and comparing their diverging approaches to writing, to theology, and to their position within their own histories. Northern Irish Poetry and Theology is an important and challenging document within contemporary criticism which will provoke as many questions as it answers and which clearly situates Gail McConnell as a key figure within upcoming Northern Irish criticism.” (Kirsten Kearney, Literature and Theology, Vol. 30 (1), March, 2016)
