New Selected Poems is a book of singular abundance and formal verve, featuring poems of rare vision and dramatic power by a consummate and resilient artist. Demonstrating the wide range of Derek Mahon's verse, from the early lyricism to a more expansive middle period ('New York Time', 'Decadence') and the flowering of his late style, it includes recent, uncollected work and culminates in the generous, far-reaching reverie 'Dreams of a Summer Night'.

'The pleasure of reading these poems is the pleasure of exceptionally good company. Kavanagh has exactly the right kind of curiosity - neither pedantic nor trifling, but casual in the best sense.' --Wynn Wheldon, Spectator
