Eamonn Hughes draws on his experience of working with Van Morrison to examine the ways in which Morrison’s representation of Belfast offers a very different view of the city from the more usual images of it as a city of conflict. In turn this offers an insight into the originality and innovation that Morrison brings to the art of song writing.
Eamonn Hughes has taught for many years in the School of English at Queen’s University Belfast. Specialing in Irish literary and cultural studies, his history of Irish literature was broadcast by BBCNI in 2009. He worked with Van Morrison on his selected lyrics, published in 2014 as Lit Up Inside.
