"In Irish traditional music, very much a part of Carson's life, the same tune should never be played the same way twice. [T]his use of performance and variation reflects on how people might exist only in the telling, in language, and how all experience might be a matter of language shuffling its cards. There is great joy in the resources of language, and great wit and humor." Mark Roper, Irish Literary Supplement

Louis MacNeice Collected Poems, edited by Peter MacDonald

Irish Poetry | New Title
 

May 2013

"generations of poets, in Ireland as well as Britain, who have learned so much from NacNeice--formally as well as in other ways--who provide the most potent argument for his poetry's continuing life. Two Irish poets in particular--Derek Mahon and Paul Muldoon--would be unrecognisable without MacNeice's example and influence..."  from Peter McDonald's Introduction to the U. S. edition

Harry Clifton - The Winter Sleep of Captain Lemass (pb)

Irish Poetry
Harry Clifton - The Winter Sleep of Captain Lemass (pb)

 Paperback with flaps and E-book.

 In this new, deeply meditative and wide-ranging collection, Harry Clifton brings his extraordinary poetic and intellectual gifts to bear on the present state of Irish culture. These are both personal and public reflections (on love, marriage, middle age and history) that stake his claim as one of the most significant Irish poets now writing.

 "There are moments when you hold your breath… and you sit up in pure delight… there are a number of poems in this book that will be read as long as any poems are read anywhere…." Colm Tóibín, Irish Times

"The influence of war in Ireland has been perpetual, and Clifton, who has traveled and lived extensively outside of his country, examines his homeland through the lens of one who left but returned to make sense of it “in the name of the lost, the disinherited,/All who never came back from the dead/To tell their story claim their place—”
