This, the first publication of Kavanagh’s ‘The Great Hunger,’ is a major highlight from the Cuala Press canon of published literature.
The work is regarded as the poet’s greatest creative work. It is fashioned from Kavanagh’s own personal observations of how life on the land could restrict human development.
