«The Great Hunger» : anti-pastoralismo e representações da morte
Rui Carvalho Homem
AbstractThe best known long poem by the Irish poet Patrick Kavanagh (1904- -1967) presents a natural and human landscape of denial, misery and barrenness within a net of references which ranges from the Bible to Irish history and the Irish coutryside, the inversion of pastoral convention supports a violently disillusioned portrayal of rural existence and the peasant characteristic of part of Kavanagh's work and some post-Revival Irish poetry.
