Summary
He landed there for the first time in the early 1990s and came to stay in 2005, fascinated by the old culture, the new culture, and the people who did or did not make the transition. Critic and poet Tillinghast has a good ear for the turns of language, the sounds of the landscape, and the echo of history as he analyzes Ireland at a time when the country became the Celtic Tiger. Tillinghast has plenty to say about such writers as Yeats, Heaney, Oscar Wilde, the Anglo-Irish Synge and Bowen, and the new poets thriving in an uneasy modern world, and saves some of his best for Irish traditional music. He also offers well-informed insights into the future of Irish poetry and the culture that the natives keep for themselves and never share with the rest of the world.
