AGNI 19 features a group of “younger Irish poets”: Medbh McGuckian, Derek Mahon, Seamus Deane, Michael Longley, Paul Muldoon, Tom Paulin, and Frank Ormsby. Born from the aftermath of the prolonged violence between Ireland and England, their poems work toward their nation’s collective goal: to form an identity separate from that of the English. Complementing this are poems by James Galvin, Cynthia Huntington, and William Harmon; fiction by Mary Morris and L. M. Rosenberg; and featured essays by Richard Pevear (on Ezra Pound and the “thinking in poetry”) and Sven Birkerts (on Czeslaw Milosz and The Witness of Poetry).
