Windharp: Niall MacMonagle's essential anthology of the last century of Irish poetry The Easter Rising of 1916 was a foundational moment of the independent Irish state; but while that insurrection continues to divide opinion, there is no disagreement as to the majesty of Yeats's 'Easter 1916', or about the excellence of the Irish poetic tradition over the past century. Windharp is an anthology that follows the twists and turns of Irish history, culture and society through the work of its remarkable standing army of poets. Edited by Niall MacMonagle, Ireland's most trusted poetry commentator, Windharp is an accessible and inspiring journey through a century of Irish life.

Glorious Irish Examiner Beautifully produced ... an appealing and appetite-whetting introduction to a century's poetry Irish Times So richly varied and yet so unified in its musicality ... They all seem to share in a kind of universal eloquence, as if the air over that island were charged with some kind of melodic ozone specifically propitious for the versifying brain. A landmark book. -- Clive James TLS
