Ileana Mӑlӑncioiu is considered a hero and visionary in Romania, where she lived under the oppressive Ceauşescu regime, learning to make oblique statement both her art and political instrument. Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin studied Romanian so she could movingly translate these poems and their powerful message. The use of legend, fable, and myth is richly important to both poets, resulting in a book of remarkable poetic compatibility.

Irish Poetry
Thomas Kinsella - Selected Poems

A deep selection of poems by one of Ireland's most esteemed poets. 

"Thomas Kinsella is a Titan among Irish writers, in more senses than one. ... With unique memorability and force these poems, in the words of 'Belief and Unbelief,' coax us to follow their author in search of understanding 'back to the dark / and the depth that i cam from.' No one who cares about poetry should hesitate to embark on the journey." The Guardian

John Montague- Speech Lessons (pb)

Irish Poetry
John Montague- Speech Lessons (pb)

John Montague's newest volume was published in a quality paperback with flaps in the spring of 2012.

One of the most beloved voices in all of Ireland, John Montague is a master. Speech Lessons depicts the many ways in which a voice may be silenced, as well as released. Autobiographical poems reveal both his personal history and his country's, with humor, nostalgia, disappointment and affection, and more than a "titter of wit."

"A Hundred Doors offers more portals behind which await the ‘soul-arenas’ of Longley’s fertile imagination; another milestone on the journey, an addendum to everything fine that he has given before, and the hope that more will come.” The Scotsman
