I do not think I could exaggerate the harshness of our schooling. Time in Armagh is John Montague s first collection of poems since Mount Eagle, winner of the Irish Book Award for Literature and a Poetry Ireland Choice.This sequence of lyrics explores the author s schooldays in Armagh, Ireland s ecclesiastical capital, during World War II. In these poems ancient and personal histories are intertwined inside a collage of contemporary events. But, as always, Montague celbrates how, even in an atmosphere of organised repression, the instinct for love can prevail.
