Thomas Moore’s, “Dear Harp of My Country” talks about the revival of interest in the Irish Harp by the British. It also discusses the dishonor done by the British in using it as a symbol for a conquered land. The narrator of the poem is a man who plays the harp, but deems himself unworthy of such an instrument. The poem makes the history more complex as it is retelling the fall of Gaelic culture through rhythmic lines. The fact that the poem talks about such an unworthiness brings the realization that there may have been a few British citizens who regretted the fall of such musical culture.
