Example text

As Benedict Anderson argues in his by now classic study of nationalism, Imagined Communities: Reflections on the Origin and Spread of Nationalism (1983, 1991), nationalism is preoccupied, among other things, with death and immortality, and in this regard it is quite unlike, for example, Marxism, or any merely political ideology, and considerably more like religion. 25 The emphasis in Irish nationalism on the immortality of those who died for the nation has a familiar appearance from the nineteenth century to the present time.

48 Less flattering, perhaps, he seems from the start to have associated the supernatural women of the faeries, their seductive, regal, and destructive power with Gonne; the lover in these poems can only think of his own death or a more general destruction as the consequence of his inability to satisfy the demands of the beloved. Thinking of her death gives some of this early poetry the emotional structure of liebestod; this tendency takes an almost Gothic turn in “A Dream of Death” (“And they had nailed the boards above her face”) and “He Wishes His Beloved Were Dead” (“O would, beloved, that you lay / Under the dock leaves in the ground”).
