Selected and with an introduction by Chris Agee

"Wake Forest University Press continues its impressive dedication to Irish poetry ... with The New North: Contemporary Poetry from Northern Ireland. ...[T]he poems and poets offer an insightful, lyrical look into the psyche of 21st-century Northern Ireland." Irish America Magazine, Feb./March2009

This groundbreaking anthology introduces readers to the surprising new voices of 15 younger poets, who “are much more likely to be interested in new technology, ecology, Eastern Europe or bilingualism, than in any expected manifestation of ‘the Northern issue’ … It is indeed the poetry of a new North.” (Chris Agee, from the Introduction). Produced in cooperation with the National Endowment for the Arts.
