The Blackbird's Nest: An Anthology of Poetry from Queen's University Belfast
Edited by Frank Ormsby
The tradition of poetic excellence at Queen’s University is celebrated in this elegant collection, edited by the critically acclaimed poet and anthologist Frank Ormsby.
Beginning with Helen Waddell, the anthology gathers together some of the most important poets of the 20th century, including Philip Larkin, Michael Longley and Medbh McGuckian as well as many poets who have made a vital contribution to the development of poetry at Queen’s.
With a foreword by Seamus Heaney and an afterword by Ciaran Carson, Professor of Poetry at the Seamus Heaney Centre for Poetry, ‘The Blackbird’s Nest’ is testament to a vigorous poetic tradition and to the enormous contribution made by Queen’s poets to British and Irish poetry over the last century.
