Irish Poetry

Medbh McGuckian - On Ballycastle Beach (paperback)

"Time and time again, her poems touch on the inextricability of the beautiful and the elusive….A classic in the making, On Ballycastle Beach will trouble many of us for some time to come." Stephen Yenser, Poetry

"…of twentieth-century poets writing in English, she strikes me as one of the most original and compelling — and as easily the most white-hot Irish poet since Yeats." Calvin Bedient, Parnassus

"Despite the comparisons that she invites with other poets, living and dead, her voice is entirely her own. She is high priestess of the miraculous, speaking in tongues, chanting into life some other life that we might have known or still might know." John Drexel, The New England Review and Broad Leaf Quarterly
