This is a document summarising some of the most interesting and significant content within the W.R. Rodgers archive (D2833) held in PRONI.


W.R. "Bertie" Rodgers occupies an important place in a generation of Ulster writers which included John Hewitt, Louis MacNeice, Roy McFadden, Sam Hanna Bell and Michael MacLaverty.  Although Rodgers was first and probably best known as a poet, he was also a literary figure in the widest sense, being a prose essayist, a book reviewer, a radio broadcaster and script writer, a lecturer and, latterly, a teacher.
