The New North: Contemporary Poetry from Northern Ireland (Anthologies and Gift Books)
American-born editor Chris Agee, who has lived in Northern Ireland for decades, provides a meticulous introduction with judicious context to explain the convoluted motives and historical betrayals that forged contemporary Northern Ireland, suggesting as he does that the ‘creative interaction’ of poets working in a ‘damaged, and damaging, society’ has freed a previously ‘hidden’ and therefore distinctive contemporary ‘Ulster’ poetics set in a ‘post-imperial’ climate … Women’s voices are better represented in The New North than in any previous collections spotlighting Northern Irish poets published on either side of the Atlantic.The gunfire and bombings are fading in these poems, but cultural troubles linger. These resonate with the most acute psychological complexity in the bilingual poets, from Cathal O Searcaigh’s ‘Caoineadh’ (‘Lament’) which (in its facing-page English rendition) tells us, ‘To-day it’s my language that’s in its throes, / The poets’ passion, my mothers’ fathers’ / mothers’ language, abandoned and trapped,’ to Gearoid Mac Lochlainn’s ‘Aistriuchain’ (‘Translations’) which (with its built-in devastating contradiction) refuses to convert its Irish original text into ‘hub-bubbly English / that turns the ferment of my poems / to lemonade’ to be condescended to by Anglophone readers who would ‘love to have the Irish’ but prefer the laziness of ‘cafe culture’ and ‘Seamus.’ (Rain Taxi Review of Books )The New North, edited by Chris Agee (Salt, £9.99) This anthology offers a snapshot of the contemporary scene in Northern Irish poetry. All the 14 writers whose work provides the main focus here were born after 1955 and the book emphasises the idea of the short lyric poem, flexible, unpredictable, free of an overemphasis on craft, as the marker of a new sensibility. Leontia Flynn's writing is fast-paced, tongue-in-cheek, swerving knowingly between the celebratory and the confrontational, and is a delight. Equally compelling are the darker notes and concentrations of Sinéad Morrissey. Both these poets are very much concerned with travel, with new places and new subject matters. Cathal Ó Searcaigh, one of two Irish-language poets included and several of whose pieces are translated by Seamus Heaney, frequently celebrates home through the possibilities of other places (see the excellent poem to Jack Kerouac). However, it's in the slender throwaway lines to be found in the work of Andy White, with their impressive lightness of touch, that the book best embodies its declared faith in the virtues of "the smaller thing". (Charles Bainbridge The Guardian )
