Irish Poetry

Thomas Kinsella - Selected Poems

"An Irish nationalist,  who has spent much of his life translating Irish poetry while teaching in the United States, his vision is as uncomfortable as Samuel Beckett's; most of the people in his poems are blown by:
       a poverty of spirit in the
                                                   wind
       a shabby richness in braving it.' " The Times (London)

 

"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 came from.' No one who cares about poetry should hesitate to embark on the journey." The Guardian
