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.

A forceful and moving final volume from one of the most masterful poets of the twentieth century. Throughout her nearly sixty-year career, acclaimed poet Eavan Boland came to be known for her exquisite ability to weave myth, history, and the life of an ordinary woman into mesmerizing poetry. She was an essential voice in both feminist and Irish literature, praised for her "edgy precision, an uncanny sympathy and warmth, an unsettling sense of history" (J. D. McClatchy). Her final volume, The Historians, is the culmination of her signature themes, exploring the ways in which the hidden, sometimes all-but-erased stories of women’s lives can powerfully revise our sense of the past. Two women burning letters in a back garden. A poet who died too young. A mother’s parable to her daughter. Boland listens to women who have long had no agency in the way their stories were told; in the title poem, she writes: "Say the word history: I see / your mother, mine. / … / Their hands are full of words." Addressing Irish suffragettes in the final poem, Boland promises: "We will not leave you behind," a promise that animates each poem in this radiant collection. These extraordinary, intimate narratives cling to the future through memory, anger, and love in ways that rebuke the official record we call history.

Patrick Kavanagh was above all a poet, but for most of his writing life he was also a prolific producer of critical and autobiographical prose. Work for newspapers and magazines was often his main source of income, and it provided him with a necessary outlet for his views on the writers of his time, and past times, on the spiritual function of poetry, and on his own background and experiences as an isolated genius, impoverished, sometimes ostracized and surrounded, as he saw it, by mediocrity. The prose writings thus stand alongside the poems as a vital guide to the thought of Kavanagh and tell us things about him that the poems do not tell.

Michael Smith was born in Dublin in 1942, and is well-known for his poetry, his editorial work, his translations of Spanish poetry (many of them for Shearsman Books), and his polemical support for the lost generation of Irish modernist poets. This volume brings together for the first time under one set of covers all of the work that he wishes to preserve, and demonstrates conclusively that this quiet but authoritative voice deserves greater recognition on both sides of the Irish Sea.

Sheila Wingfield (1906-1992) was a poet whose clarity of voice and original eye for detail offers readers fresh insight into life in the middle decades of the 20th century. Published in 1938, Wingfield's first volume of poems displays her enduring interest in classical literature, brought to life in vivid and precise language. Though she later became isolated from the literary scene, Wingfield remained a poet of cosmopolitan perspectives, endlessly curious about other cultures and fascinated by the fields of history and science. The poems in this volume show Wingfield's style at its most accomplished and memorable.
