Announcing a new special e-pamphlet from Poetry NI for Christmas, by Elizabeth McGeown.
" 'twas two weeks before Christmas
and all through Belfast
people are trying to relive their past."
McGeown's epic poem 'twas captures many stories of the Christmas season: from the parties and celebrations, to the isolation felt by many, to commerce, music, TV specials and other traditions. It is a poem born of Belfast, and the unique situation the city centre found itself in during the wake of the Primark fire; but it also explores how Christmas can make us reflect on our own personal identity, and how we choose to engage with others.
