Description
Poets and Politics: Reaction and Continuity in Irish Poetry 1558-1625 is a major re-evaluation of the response of the influential elite of Irish bardic poets to the political, social, and religious changes experienced during the Stuart period. In the absence of Gaelic administrative records, historians of early modern Ireland are fortunate to be able to draw upon a relatively large range of literary material in Irish from which to reconstruct contemporary mentalities and to investigate the nature of Gaelic reaction to the English crown's conquest and colonization of the island. During this period of critical change and unparalleled upheaval, when the scene was set for a series of historical developments whose impact continues to reverberate today, bardic poets initiated a process of ideological re-evaluation which redefined indigenous communal notions of ethnicity, culture, and religion.
