Rethinking the Irish in the American South

Conor O’callaghan

University Press of Mississippi

This chapter presents the author’s introduction to his poem, “This Far South,” which was written in December 2006. It offers a partial impressionist explanation of the images and concerns that may have fed into the poem. He describes the poem as like negatives of two separate landscapes, laid onto one another and held up to the light, in which North Louth and North Carolina are seen as one place.

Keywords:   Irish, American South, poetry, North Louth, North Carolina
