Irish Poetry

Medbh McGuckian - The Soldiers of Year II (clothbound)

"Her use of metaphor is freer and more extravagant than anything I've read recently in American or English poetry, and her poems work wonders through simile….For readers able to suspend the tendency to grasp at explication and who can enjoy the drama of shifting identities and the play of imagination, these poems are not to be missed." Richard Tillinghast, The New York Times Book Review

"McGuckian is…in her radical reconfiguring of English poetic conventions, imaginatively liberating the language of Northern Ireland from its old agonies. If there is a more audacious and important poetry being written today, I have not read it." Kate Daniels, The Southern Review
