Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

From Centre City, Thomas Kinsella's first book of poems since Blood and Family (1988), is an outstanding selection of poetry taken from the works of five pamphlets, privately published by Kinsella's own Peppercannister Press in Dublin. Dealing primarily with family history and the bloody social history of the nineteenth century that are "tangled together in the area," this collection continues with a body of personal poetry based on experiences and places in various parts of the poets previous home city of Dublin. Also included are the first short poems from Kinsella's new home in County Wicklow. The editor of the highly acclaimed New Oxford Book of Irish Verse and translator of the Irish classic The Tain, Kinsella again establishes himself as a poet whom Seamus Heaney hailed as one "who over the last decade has been mastering an idiom."
