James Orr was the foremost of the Ulster Weaver poets and has been favourably compared to his near contemporary Robert Burns. Baraniuk looks at Orr's life and work, examining the changing social, political and theological context of his writing and reassessing his contribution to radical literature and culture during the Romantic era.

About the Series

Poetry and Song in the Age of Revolution

The series examines how these two intimately related genres were used to explore and disseminate new political ideas in a period of Enlightenment, Romanticism, and Revolution.

Scholars working within the disciplines of English, history, music, Celtic studies, and politics will find the series of interest, as will researchers whose wider concerns pertain to cultural history, anthropology and the history of philosophy, communication, and linguistics.
