‘The Innocent and the beautiful’ wrote W.B. Yeats, ‘have no enemy but time’ …

a cliam contested yet deeply considered  here in poems honouring revolutionary Anglo-Irish sisters Eva-gore Booth and Constance Markirevicz, that Yeatsian bird the Linnet, the Northern Irish peace process, and the traditional Irish form the ‘aisling or vision poem’ The predations of time are mourned and challenged most intimately, though, in poems in memory of Belfast writer and cultural activist Mairtín Crawford, and his quietly remarkable mother, Flo Crawford. Elegiac yet defiant, ‘No Enemy but Time’ ‘keeps’ Naomi Foyle’s dream of Ireland alive’
