What ideas about being 'Irish' does "The Fisherman" explore? And what other poems explore the same idea, in the same or different ways?


You need 3-4 strong ideas to base your argument on.

Poems to consider using: ‘September 1913’; ‘Easter 1916’; ‘In memory of Eva Gore-Booth and Con Markiewicz’; ‘An Irish Airman foresees his death’.
