Description

Juxtaposing verse and image, A Poet's Dublin is a study of origin and influence from "a major Irish poet" (Edward Hirsch).


Written over years, the transcendent and moving poems in A Poet's Dublin seek out shadows and impressions of a powerful, historic city, studying how it forms and alters language, memory, and selfhood. The poems range from an evocation of the neighborhoods under the hills where the poet lived and raised her children to the inner-city bombing of 1974, and include such signature poems as "The Pomegranate," "The War Horse," and "Anna Liffey." Above all, these poems weave together the story of a self and a city—private, political, and bound by history. The poems are supported by photographs of the city at all times and in all seasons: from dawn on the river Liffey, which flows through Dublin, to twilight up in the Dublin foothills.

        Starred review from December 1, 2016

        The chill and grit of Dublin eddy through this collection of poems by one of Ireland's most beloved poets, whose observations of everyday life in the "cast iron and adamant" Irish capital will make residents look at their city anew and all others feel they are walking the city's streets. The poems were selected by Paula Meehan (Dharmakaya) and Jody Allen Randolph (Eavan Boland) to create "a topography of the city with the poet in particular places at different ages and phases of her life." The poems also explore home and inner lives that are born of place and resonate with Dublin details: the white pepper, the history that is a daily presence: "The patriot was made of drenched stone./ His lips were still speaking./ The gun/ he held had just killed someone." The pieces are accompanied by Boland's black-and-white photographs of Dublin; some depict a place or thing mentioned in the poem they complement, while others are antagonistic ormerely evocative of the city. The title closes with a conversation between Meehan, herself an urban poet, and Boland. VERDICT Essential for Irish studies collections and the poetry shelves of larger public libraries.--Henrietta Verma, National Information Standards Organization, Baltimore
