About this

Laurence McKeown almost died in the H-Blocks following 70 days on hunger strike in 1981. In this debut collection of poems, written during his incarceration and in subsequent years, Laurence explores themes of politics, family, comradeship, longing, desire, and love.

Ba bheag nach bhfuair Laurence McKeown bás na H-Bhlocanna i ndiaidh na 70 lá a chaith sé ar stailc ocrais in 1981. Sa chéad chnuasach filíochta seo atá aige, a bhí scríofa aige le linn na mblianta a chaith sé i bpríosún agus ina dhiaidh sin, pléann Laurence le téamaí na polaitíochta, an teaghlaigh, na comrádaíochta, na dúile, na méine agus an ghrá.
