test Ciaran Carson: Selected Poems

Paul Carson

Carson’s work is both political and personal as it engages recent history — including the Troubles and violence in Northern Ireland — and the past. His long lines encompass listings of both urban realities and nostalgic images of the past, linking memory and cartography to give a portrait of life in Belfast. This volume brings together a selection of his poetry from his collections The Irish for No (1987), Belfast Confetti (1989), and First Language: Poems (1994).
