Description

'Suddenly as the riot squad moved in, it was raining
exclamation marks'.

In 'Belfast Confetti', Ciaran Carson uses punctuation marks to describe a typical scene of violence during the Troubles.

Our lesson plan invites teachers to employ two pieces on Northern Ireland by two brothers, Christopher and Peter Hitchens, then to look in detail at the references to streets named after people or battles in the Crimean War.
