. This is a book that deeply impressed and moved me and I recommend it to anyone interested in the Troubles While you may need some background information to understand the context this is a diary after all it is especially helpful if you want to learn to understand how the 1981 hunger strike came to be, to understand the motives of the strikers as well as the situation Northern Ireland finds itself in Throughout the book, I was constantly surprised by how well Sands managed to convey his situation and his feelings in a truly artistic way despite the condition he was in during most of this diary it was written during his strike He died after 63 days His poetry truly makes you see how he tries to honour traditional Irish poetry and music The book also makes you understand in which kind of tradition the Republican prisoners of war saw themselves the 1916 Easter Rising participants and a long history of Republican Irish people that were the victims of ruthless oppression by the British Though Sands opinions might seem radical at first, the treatment he and his comrades received by the screws is truly abhorrent, disgusting and shocking, and in the end one must admire how Sands managed to maintain his morale and his humanity as an oppressed revolutionary, one must admire how clearly he reflects his and the situation of the Irish people as a whole he always puts his and his comrades suffering in the bigger context , how he maintained his political positions as well as his artistic, poetic nature and how emotionally truthful and touching the tales of the torture he endures are clear, direct, and brutal, but always honest and with the goal to touch the reader and to make him understand his situation keeping in mind that the diary was written on pieces of toilet paper and cigarette filters under scarce conditions with a pencil that he kept hidden inside his own body, you can only wonder how he managed to go to such lenghts to express his emotions It must have been vital Though the pathos is pretty strong in this, it s always honesty and bravery conveyed He also does not leave out the most bitter, doubtful and depressing moments of his life in prison in oppressed Northern Ireland At times, the book is really hard to read the conditions the prisoners were held in, the mental and physical torture they endured is unbelievable and leaves you shaking Though in the descriptions of these situations, Sands does not hide his despair, it s incredible how he could find beauty and hope in his struggle and in history, in those who came before him, who inspired a lot of beautiful poetry that he managed to write under these conditions before his tragic death Though formally and metrically, his poems sometimes lack a certain perfection, this is also endearing and speaks of how vital writing was to him and how he tried to honour Irish poetic Republican traditions I really recommend this book to everyone interested in Ireland s history but also in colonialism and oppression in general. h Music Player For Google Drive. ^Free Ebook ☜ Bobby Sands: Writings from Prison ☉ Best Book, Bobby Sands Writings From Prison Author Bobby Sands This Is Very Good And Becomes The Main Topic To Read, The Readers Are Very Takjup And Always Take Inspiration From The Contents Of The Book Bobby Sands Writings From Prison, Essay By Bobby Sands Is Now On Our Website And You Can Download It By Register What Are You Waiting For Please Read And Make A Refission For You
