Availability: In stock

An illuminating, often disturbing insight into Derry's darkest day, Harrowing of the Heart: The Poetry of Bloody Sunday attempts to capture the disbelief and heartbreak felt by a nation through the artistic responses of a few.

Compositions by an array of eyewitnesses, relatives and local writers merge seamlessly alongside internationally renowned figures such as Seamus Heaney, Brian Friel, Seamus Deane, Christy Moore, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Thomas Kinsella and Paul Muldoon to create a unique literary perspective of the events of 30 January 1972.

Through this collection, poets, musicians and dramatists from all walks of life share a rich and deeply personal archive, some of which has never been seen before, commemorating the anguish of Bloody Sunday and its devastating legacy on an entire city.

With a foreword by Bishop Edward Daly.
