Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A collection of five books of poems by Northern Irish poet Peter McDonald, this book ranges wildly across subjects and forms and combines intense emotional perception with a historical and personal imagination. Ambitious and original, it meditates on place, belonging, loss, and love while exploring the haunting persistence of memories and the acts of remembrance that preserve and shape them. The classical world inspired many of the works herein and his lyrical narrative style has established him as one of the important writers of contemporary Northern Irish poetry.

About the Author

Peter McDonald is a lecturer, a poet, and the author of several books, including The House of Clay, Pastorals, and Torchlight. He is the recipient of the Eric Gregory Award and the University of Oxfords Newdigate Prize for Poetry.
