Publisher Comments:

A major collection of 20th century Irish poetry. Forty-seven poets are represented with over 250 poems to present readers with the very best of Irish poetry since Yeats. Crotty begins in the '30s with the poetry of Austin Clarke, Patrick Kavanagh, Samuel Beckett, and Louis MacNeice, then turns to Thomas Kinsella, John Montague, Seamus Heaney, and Michael Longley, and completes this stunning overview with pieces from such younger poets as Paul Durcan, Paul Muldoon, and Ian Duhig. Women's poetry is strongly represented by, among others, Medbh McGuickan, Eavan Boland, Nula Ni Dhomhnaill, and Paula Meehan. Gaelic poetry is also represented, with accompanying translations. An indispensable companion for anyone wanting to experience the modern challenges and pleasures of one of the world's most vibrant poetry traditions.

Synopsis:

This is a collection of over 250 poems which represent the best Irish poetry since Yeats. Short biographical/critical essays on each poet and an introduction makes this a useful companion for anyone wanting to experience contemporary Irish poetry.
