The Stoic Man
About the book…
The Stoic Man is Gerald Dawe’s retrospective on the Northern Irish society in which he grew up during the 1950s and ’60s, set alongside a portrait of the west of Ireland where he settled in the early 1970s and concludes with some views of Irish writing and present day Ireland as seen from the poet’s home in County Dublin.
The Stoic Man is the final volume in a quartet of literary and cultural studies from Dawe published by Lagan Press.
