Summary
"This collection of essays reveals how some of the great Irish poets and dramatists of the past and present have drawn on Greek myths, which have travelled across three thousand years, to bring new insights on the world in which we now live." "Amid Our Troubles examines the work of such writers as Marina Carr, Brian Friel, Brendan Kennelly, Frank McGuinness and W. B. Yeats, and includes new essays from, amongst others, Seamus Deane, Seamus Heaney and Tom Paulin."--BOOK JACKET
