This Collection contains virtually all his own poems, written over the past forty years. His early books, of the 1950s and 1960s, include occasional poems, lyrics in traditional forms, and longer poems and sequences on themes ranging from history to politics. There are speculative narratives in local settings and family poems of close observation. There is also much public poety, including "Butcher's Dozen," on the Bloody Sunday shootings in Derry. His books since the 1980s continue with poems of public and literary comment, and a growing body of personal and private poetry. This offers an intriguing glimpse into the evolution of a fascinating poet.

Decoding Samara
by Patrick Deeley

Taking as his theme the forces of nature, and trees in particular, Patrick Deeley looks at our relationship past and present with our environment. His opening poem, "Rathgar Pastoral", imagines a ghostly presence of the farm woman who once inhabited what has become a suburban garden, while "By Cruagh Wood" looks to the future when a newly hatched grub will be encased
".....in an amber bead, to be discovered by a child as yet unborn......."
In "Yard Sticks" the poet recalls his relationship with the trees he used for balancing or climbing, seeing them as purely practical in intent, when "each tree implied furniture". The further possibilities only came to him
"...when, one day, I shelved a pencil behind my ear, blood and imagery whispered to each other, slowly decoding samara, the keys."
Patrick Deeley's fourth collection of poems is marked by a tangible sense of the woods, rivers and creatures that make up our living world. Pauline Ferrie
(Irish Emigrant)

Exemplary Damages
by Dennis O'Driscoll

His magnetically readable sixth collection is rife with any modern city dweller's anxieties: Will the kids come home all right? Will my heart beat long enough? Will I languish some day in a sick bed? Where did God go? One of ireland's most popular contemporary poets, he's new to us and we're delighted to have found him.

An Origin Like water
Collected Poems: 1967 - 1987
by Eaven Boland

Here is the collected early work, long unavailable in the United States, of one of Ireland's major modern poets. Comprising poems from Eavan Boland's five early volumes - NEW TERRITORY, THE WAR HORSE, IN HER OWN IMAGE, NIGHT FEED, and THE JOURNEY - An ORIGIN LIKE WATER demonstrates how Boland's mature voice has developed from the poetics of inner exile into a subtle, flexible idiom uniquely her own.

Collected Poems of Louis MacNeice
Edited by E. R. Dodds

"The writer today should be not so much the mouthpiece of a community...as its conscience, its critical faculty its generous intellect."Louis MacNeice

In his lifetime, Louis MacNeice wrote nearly a dozen books of poetry and one that was published posthumously, “The Burning Perch.” In this collection, the editor has compiled many of the finest examples of the author’s creative efforts, including the excellent “Prayer before Birth” and “Neutrality.”

Selected Poems of Padraic Colum

At the age of twenty three Colum was already a gifted, prolific, and versatile writer. He was a major contributor to the Irish National Theatre Society, founded by by W. B. yeats, Lady Gregory, AE (George William Russell), and others, and he himself was one of the founders of the immortal Abbey Theatre.
Unlike other leading figures of the Irish Literary revival, Colum alone was a Roman Catholic, peasant born and country bred. AE convinced the young writer that he had a mission as a poet: to portray the fundamental nature of the Irish peasant experience as only Colum could.
Please click Selected Poems of Padraic Colum.

Heartfelt political poems such as ‘Valentine Brown’ can be read side by side with the personal elegy ‘A Cry for Art O’Leary’ and poems of place and nature like ‘County Mayo’. Many of these poems may be known already in the original Irish but Brendan Kennelly’s fresh, direct and spontaneous translations will renew their appeal to readers and lovers of poetry.
