John Montague - Mount Eagle (paperback)

1989  75 pages
paperback

 "His optimism is never forced, always aware of the 'gloomy procession of casualties'; but, like the salmon swimming upstream in the early poems in the book, his aim is to spawn into affirmation.  Montague has always organized his collections with great care, poems echoing and developing each other, and this is no exception.  It reveals a considerable poet at the heigh of his powers continuing to plumb 'the lost world of primordial depths.' " Conor Kelly, In Dublin

“John Montague has been so long an established fact of the poetry of the English-speaking world that there is a tendency to take his really quite remarkable achievement for granted. He is a poet of enormous lyrical gifts, but he has as well an acute and dramatic sense of history -- reland's and the world's -- and a gentle moral insistence, all of which makes his Collected Poems an absolutely essential volume.” C.K. Williams

"Montague's Rough Field is a remarkable primer for those who would truly understand the division of Ireland today." James Coleman, The Compass

"John Montague's The Rough Field is a kind of 'state of the nation' poem, built up of visions and glimpses of locality, legend, and history, and as such it is astonishingly successful; moving, too, and as soundly crafted as the rosewood fiddle which seems to play with mourning sweetness in the margins." - John Bayley, The New York Review

"One can only set up against [Montague] the great love poems: Chaucer's superb lyric, the most formidable of Shakespeare's Sonnets and a scattering from other Elizabethans and Cavaliers, together with a few poems each from Burns, Byron, Shelley, Landor, Browning, Meredith and Yeats.… From this time on, whatever else he may write, John Montague's voice will always be raised in the ranks of the great poets of our literature." Robin Skelton, Malahat Review

Shortlisted for the Irish Times Literature Prize in Poetry, 2001

"... [He has] a Yeats-like mastery over theme and poetic form as the way and the means for transforming personal experience into 'the artifice of eternity.'... Murphy's poems register with a cumulative weight and density approaching the monolithic. This publication of his Collected Poems begins to give this poet long-deserved recognition." Boston Review
