An Anthology of Irish War Poetry 1914–45

In the first half of the twentieth century, the men and women of Ireland experienced the brutal realities of a succession of wars - from the unrelenting casualties of the First World War, to the domestic upheavals of the 1916 Easter Rising and the Irish Civil War; from the romantic idealism of the Spanish Civil War, to the unimaginable horrors of the Second World War.

Earth Voices Whispering gathers together, for the very first time, a wide range of poetic voices that chart the human experiences of these wars. Featuring over two hundred and fifty poems by celebrated poets such as Francis Ledwidge, W.B. Yeats and Seamus Heaney, and including new poems by Derek Mahon and Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin, the anthology records the thoughts and experiences of poets as soldiers, patriots, observers, protesters, medics and mourners.

From patriotism to anger, passion to compassion, hope to regret, this ground breaking new anthology embraces the complex reality of a rich, unique and historically overlooked period in Irish poetry.
