Ten Poems from Ireland (Booklet)

by Various poets, Selected and Introduced by Paula Meehan - £4.95  Candlestick Press (2017)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9781907598432 | ISBN 10: 190759843x

Ten poems chosen by Paula Meehan, one of Ireland’s major living poets... Our latest publication is a spellbinding selection of modern poems that encompass Ireland’s folklore and recent history, alongside enduring themes of ageing, love and childhood.
 
There are poems about ‘The Troubles’ and about what it means to be Irish, as well as poems about the country’s bi-lingual heritage. These are poems that speak plainly and with a directness that will appeal to every reader. We think we can guarantee that both seasoned readers and newcomers to Irish poetry will find plenty to relish in this selection.

"She was a song that nobody sings.
She was a house ransacked by soldiers.
She was a language seldom spoken.
She was a child’s purse, full of useless things."
(from ‘Death of an Irishwoman’ by Michael Hartnett)
