These poems tell the story of an Irish rebel who was a practical idealist of astounding energy. The verse, as well as being technically superb, simmers with indignation.

Categories: Home rule
"Even more so than the Young Ireland rising of 1848, the Fenian rebellion was an unqualified fiasco." So states Professor Hachey in the introduction to Britain and Irish Separatism. He goes from there to analyze the almost forty years of unsuccessful efforts by Irish and British leaders to reach a constitutional solution to "the Irish question," a failure that culminated in the resurgence of revolutionary separatism, the Easter Rising of 1916, and the growth of Sinn Fein. The Irish War for Independence and the Partition Compromise of 1921 are explored in detail, as is the relationship between Irish separatism and American politics, and the international impact of a free Ireland. - Back cover.

Thomas Macdonagh Books, Thomas Macdonagh poetry book Dividing Ireland Authors: Professor of Modern British and Irish History Thomas Hennessey, Thomas Hennessey
Publisher: Routledge
Published Date: 2005-06-20
Categories: History
This book provides an original assessment of the First World War in Ireland and its consequences, the key to understanding the complexities of the Irish nation today. Thomas Hennessey explores how the War transformed the nature of the Irish and Ulster questions from devolved self-government within the UK to a free Irish republic outside the British Empire, considering such influential figures as de Valera and Michael Collins, and issues such as conscription. He examines both this process of re-evaluation, and the vital question of the consequences for Northern Ireland today.

Henry Lawson Poem
Do You Think That I Do Not Know?
 by Henry Lawson

They say that I never have written of love,
As a writer of songs should do;
They say that I never could touch the strings
With a touch that is firm and true;
They say I know nothing of women and men
In the fields where Love's roses grow,
And they say I must write with a halting pen
Do you think that I do not know?
