About this book

Northern Irish Poetry and Domestic Space explores why houses, in some ways the most private of spaces, have taken up such visibly public positions in the work of a range of prominent poets from Northern Ireland, examining the work of Seamus Heaney, Michael Longley, Derek Mahon and Medbh McGuckian.

Reviews

“The virtue of his writing is its understated, perfectly tuned affinity with the poets about whom he writes. … Hanna’s description of the tension between the intimacy of the lyric and the public demands on the work highlights the major achievement of this volume: it is a book that in its consideration of domestic space ultimately meditates on the private and public stability of lyric poetry and its vital importance in times of trouble.” (Kelly E. Sullivan, Dublin Review of Books, drb.ie, January, 2017)

“Northern Irish Poetry and Domestic Space engages with the different ways in which houses occupy a prominent position in the writing of a range of well-known poets from Northern Ireland. … Northern Irish Poetry and Domestic Space is an illuminating and multifaceted study. It makes a valuable contribution to the field of Irish Studies as the diversity of the themes tackled demonstrates the author’s profound knowledge of Northern Irish poetry.” (Stephanie Schwerter, Irish Review, Issue 53, 2016)

“This is a beautifully written volume, rooted in detailed close readings and expertly engaged with the particulars of Northern Irish culture and politics. … Hanna’s work on domestic space makes a significant contribution to the criticism—a contribution that will interest any reader of contemporary Irish poetry.” (Julia C. Obert, New Hibernia Review, Vol. 20 (3), 2016)
