Description

Over the past twenty years, Paul Durcan has become an essential presence in Irish life, and is internationally known for his poetry. This is the first full-length study of his work, a critical evaluation of the essential themes in his poems. Contributions from fellow poets (Derek Mahon, Ruth Padel, Eamon Grennan) and critics (Edna Longley, Brian Kennedy, Fintan O'Toole) make this a vital and significant assessment of one of the most original poets writing in the English language. The book's title is that of one of his most famous poems.--From the publisher
