The New North anthology of Northern Irish poetry answers two major questions: how did the two great generations-with their huge international influence, exemplified by Seamus Heaney and Paul Muldoon-emerge from such a small place? And what is the future direction of Irish poetry in Northern Ireland? Young Northern Irish poets have reasons for continuing to make political claims in their work, but even for them other subjects are beginning to become equally pressing.
