Many of the contributions here have something of a personal feel to them whether it is in remembrance of times past or of the events that shaped us as a nation and perhaps it is that absence of comment that was noted in our own anthology on the part played by women throughout the Rising, or afterwards, that is more than redressed here, that lends something towards that. The new state though was not kind to women. The "Letter of Comfort" by Mary Higgins towards the end of the book and other pieces tell their own story. There are contributions here as well from participating Rocommon schools both Secondary and National that draw something from the Hanna Greally experience and noted now in relation to where she was incarcerated, it is a story that just won't go away. Some of Ireland's best known poets and writers are included here as well and maybe George Walker's poem, "Reflections in a Glass Darkly" on the centenary of Einstein's General Theory of Relatively says it all. The Book is published by The Manuscript Press.
