“… every poem is a queering of language; every poetry critic is a critic of the queer; every reader of poetry is engaged in a queer act; every performance of poetry is a queer iteration. But only we are queer.”
So writes Paul Maddern in the introduction to Queering the Green which brings together 31 of the most distinctive Irish poets who have emerged in this century to represent the multiplicity and vibrancy of the queer experience.
The anthology addresses the exclusions of the past, speaks to the diversity of the present, and points towards the radical possibilities of the future.
