    Irish Pages: Criticism


    IRISH PAGES is a biannual journal, edited in Belfast and publishing, in equal measure, writing from Ireland and overseas.

    Its policy is to publish poetry, short fiction, essays, creative non-fiction, memoir, essay reviews, nature-writing, translated work, literary journalism, and other autobiographical, historical, religious and scientific writing of literary distinction. There are no standard reviews or narrowly academic articles. Irish Language and Ulster Scots writing are published in the original, with English translations or glosses.

    Each issue includes a number of regular features: From the Irish Archive, an extract of writing from a non-contemporary Irish writer, accompanied by a brief biographical note; In Other Words, a selection of translated work from a particular country; and The Publishing Scene, a commissioned piece taking a critical look at some aspect of the literary world in Ireland, Britain or the United States. Each issue also contains a portfolio of work from a leading photographer.

    IRISH PAGES is a non-partisan, non-sectarian, culturally ecumenical, and wholly independent journal. It seeks to create a novel literary space in the North adequate to the unfolding cultural potential of the new political dispensation. The magazine is cognisant of the need to reflect in its pages the various meshed levels of human relations: the regional (Ulster), the national (Ireland and Britain), the continental (the whole of Europe), and the global.

    The issue Criticism, which is Volume 10, Number 1, features;

    • Eva Hoffman on Europe’s “Internal Others
    • Neil Corcoran on “The Mahon Prose
    • The Good, the Bad & the Dire: Patricia Craig on recent Irish fiction
    • Mark Cousins on “The Story of Looking
    • Hugh Dunkerley on “Poetry and Fracking

    As well as much more.
