Irish Poetry
Nuala Ni Dhomhnail - The Astrakhan Cloak

1993   112 pages
paperback
In Irish; translated by Paul Muldoon

"Certainly the work of both poets has much in common: sensuality, wit, irreverence and a delight in lore, legend (particularly local legend) and linguistic dexterity.... The poems often read like spells set to invigorate and intrigue." The Sunday Tribune

1993   160 pages
paperback
In Irish, with translations by thirteen of Ireland's leading poets


"[T]he branching-out, or shape-shifting, from Gaelic myth or folk-song to some less romantic or quirkier emblem of the present, is a constant resource of Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill's poetry; and it's one of the ways she has rescued the Irish language from its association with Gaelic League pieties or the pedantries of the past." Times Literary Supplement

"The Irish poet Conor O'Callaghan ought to have more of a reputation here: few American poets his age (he is thirty-eight) bring to the cozy matter of domesticity so much vigor and readiness. ...The house-of-mirrors deceits and self-deceits of estranged lovers here receive full, impressive representation. ..."

"O'Callaghan's poetry is marvellously his own. … [Its] bewitching obliquity … obviates neat conclusions. What is evident from Seatown and its predecessor is that Conor O'Callaghan is a gifted poet." Stephen Knight, The Literary Supplement

October 2008   300 pages
paperback
Selected and with an introduction by Chris Agee

"Wake Forest University Press continues its impressive dedication to Irish poetry ... with The New North: Contemporary Poetry from Northern Ireland. ...[T]he poems and poets offer an insightful, lyrical look into the psyche of 21st-century Northern Ireland." Irish America Magazine, Feb./March2009

This groundbreaking anthology introduces readers to the surprising new voices of 15 younger poets, who “are much more likely to be interested in new technology, ecology, Eastern Europe or bilingualism, than in any expected manifestation of ‘the Northern issue’ … It is indeed the poetry of a new North.” (Chris Agee, from the Introduction). Produced in cooperation with the National Endowment for the Arts.
