Humanities Lecturer Publishes Comprehensive Analysis of Northern Irish Poetry

Jon Curley, university lecturer in the Humanities Department at NJIT, has just published Poets and Partitions: Confronting Communal Identities in Northern Ireland. The book offers a comprehensive analysis of Northern Irish poetry focusing on the colonial, political, and cultural underpinnings that have shaped artistic expression in a variety of ways. In discussing the rich poetry reflecting the conflict of community, Curley examines what aesthetic choices poets make in order to register, resist, or re-imagine life and thought under particularly tumultuous conditions.
