ISBN: 9781529092776 Category:

bandit country is written in the very particular dialect of the Irish border, as Ulster Scots and Ulster Gaelic shade into the language and culture of post-Celtic Tiger Ireland. Spectres of characters both mythic and real thread through these poems, giving them a slippery, ghostly quality. Bandit country is a haunting exploration of this place and its people, looking back to the Troubles and forward towards Brexit – and to the ever-looming fences and boundaries with which we must reckon, collectively and urgently.]]>
