In "Poets of Munster" Sean Dunne charts the vigorous and diverse poetry that has been written in Ireland's southernmost province during the last half-century. Twenty-five poets - from Thomas MacGreevy and Frank O'Connor to Thomas McCarthy, from Sean Riordain to Nuala Ni Dhomhnaill - demonstrate the consolidation and renewal of the Munster poetic tradition which Sean Dunne discusses in his introduction. This is the first anthology of Munster poetry since 1849, and the first collection of modern Irish poetry that illustrates the resurgence of Irish-language writing alongside writing in English. The picture that emerges is of an outward-looking, confident poetry that belongs, in either language, to the mainstream of modern poetry.
