The comparative study of the literatures of Ireland and Scotland has emerged as a distinct and buoyant field in recent years. This collection of new essays offers the first sustained comparison of modern Irish and Scottish poetry, featuring close readings of texts within broad historical and political contextualisation. Playing on influences, crossovers, connections, disconnections and differences, the 'affinities' and 'opposites' traced in this book cross both Irish and Scottish poetry in many directions. Contributors include major scholars of the new 'archipelagic' approach, as well as leading Irish and Scottish poets providing important insights into current creative practice. Poets discussed include W. B. Yeats, Hugh MacDiarmid, Sorley MacLean, Louis MacNeice, Edwin Morgan, Douglas Dunn, Seamus Heaney, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Michael Longley, Medbh McGuckian, Nuala ni Dhomhnaill, Don Paterson and Kathleen Jamie. This book is a major contribution to our understanding of poetry from these islands in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

    "H" means Heading. Very simplistically, when used, it tells Google that it is something worth emphasizing, or is a section divider. So when Google crawls and reads the content on your site, having these headings will help it understand a bit better what your content is about. H1 has a much higher emphasis than H6. So for some users, having better control over headings can help you better communicate what you are trying to emphasize on the page.

    However, generally speaking for all websites, each website can only have one domain name. So you can only connect one single domain name to your website, and that's the only domain name that will show up on a web browser.
