Stewart Parker: A Life (Book)
Title: Stewart Parker: A Life
Author: Marilynn Richtarik
Abstract: "Stewart Parker: A Life" presents the career of this important playwright in the context of a lively discussion of his personal history and of the turbulent times through which he lived in his native Belfast. A contemporary of Seamus Heaney from a working-class Protestant background, Parker shared with other Northern Irish writers of his generation the challenge of dealing with the Troubles in a politically, morally, and aesthetically responsible manner. The story of the different ways in which he met the demands of this subject matter affords insights into the experience of daily life in the shadow of political violence. Illuminating for specialists and general readers alike, this accessible and engaging critical biography is based on Parker's personal papers, along with dozens of interviews with his family, friends, acquaintances, and collaborators.
