This volume brings together twenty years of the acclaimed Irish poets work. Each of Greg Delantys six books so far published is an entity in itself- a single-seeming movement. Bringing the books together in a single volume- juxtaposing them as it were- reveals the enormous resourcefulness and wit of this unusual poet who keenly interweaves material and themes drawn from his reading- writing and living (there is no real line between them). Marriage- childbirth- friendship- landscapes Irish and Indian and American- real and imagined- politics- the personal and private and the public...we are organised as a word and a line and a stanza are made from a tray of type- as in a tapestry the unseen sewing happens and holds- as in growth a foetus evolves into a child. Things fall apart- too- and there is pattern and method in that process as well. The poems draw on a rich inheritance from the different worlds that Delanty moves in: Ireland and America- Gaelic and English- traditional verse forms and modern colloquial. Past and future- their people and places- inform and interpret one another....
