That this was often done by implication made it no less shocking; the authentic lifting of the hairs on the back of the neck that I still remember when I opened North , with its exploration of the archaeology of atrocity, was replicated in reading Station Island , with its extraordinary title poem tracing a ghostly Dantean journey through the shades of Irish history, meeting with the dead.
