In his second collection, Errata, Michael Donaghy continues to explore the twin themes of love and the reproduced error. Particularly compelling is "O'Ryan's Belt," a sequence of poems dedicated to forgotten musicians that charts the spiritual geography of the oral tradition from rural Ireland to the slums of Athens, New York, and Chicago. Written in meticulously wrought lyrics, Errata features several bizarre narratives detailing, for instance, the revenge of a Renaissance metalsmith, the disgrace of an eleventh-century Japanese courtesan, and the disappearance of a Victorian Admiral.

Errata is Michael Donaghy's eagerly awaited second book of poems. His first volume, Shibboleth, won second prize in the 1987 National Poetry Competition. Born in the United States, he was for several years poetry editor of the Chicago Review before moving to England Currently, Donaghy lives in north London, where he also plays with a group of traditional Irish musicians.
'further demonstration of Donaghty's concern for the good design ... Donaghy's poetry is never less than self-assured'

Book Description Oxford Paperbacks, 1993. Soft cover. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition... A rare signed Donaghy, with the signature on the title page, and with 'Charterhouse' written beneath it, and beneath that 'Thanks!'This soft cover first edition was never issued in hardback. Unaccountably neglected in America, this poet seems to me several heads taller than most. Poetry that sticks; fresh thoughts that can make you smile, feel humble, or break out in a sweat. Yes, that's Donaghy. Predictive text distorts the name to 'Dinghy' by the way. I suspect the poet would have smiled at that. I realise £130 is a lot of money, but this signature is rare and it can only get rarer. Maybe I don't want to sell it? Language: eng Language: eng 0.0 Language: eng 0.0 Language: eng 0.0.
