9781857548259: Collected Poems: Austin Clarke

Long out of print, these collected poems reflect the career of one of the best Irish poets of the 20th century, as important as Patrick Kavanagh, Thomas Kinsella, or Seamus Heaney. His work is distinguished by the influence of Gaelic poetry and was important in drawing the public's attention to the Irish modernists. This collection was compiled in 1974—the year of Clarke's death—and has been updated with a new introduction and expanded notes.

About the Author:

Austin Clarke, born in Dublin in 1896, was one of the leading Irish poets in the generation after W. B. Yeats. He reviewed poetry for the Irish Times for more than 20 years, broadcast a weekly poetry program on Radio Eireann, and wrote plays, novels, and memoirs. He died in 1974. Dardis Clarke is the poet’s son and a poet in his own right.

Book Description Carcanet Press Ltd. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Collected Poems, Austin Clarke, Dardis Clarke, Austin Clarke's first book of poetry was published in 1917, his last in 1971. In a writing life spanning much of the twentieth century, Clarke created from his early, Yeatsian immersion in Gaelic myth and literature a poetry of passionate, idiosyncratic modernity, rooted in place and time, universal in its resonance. His is poetry, writes Christopher Ricks, of 'delicate and dancing interlacings' which is also 'simple as join-hands'.Clarke can be challengingly elliptical or as robust and earthy as folk tradition; he dares the terrors of the damaged soul. His later poems "Thomas Kinsella" described in "The Dual Tradition" as 'wickedly glittering narratives.poetry as pure entertainment, serious and successful'. The first "Collected Poems of Austin Clarke" appeared shortly after his death in 1974. Now, newly edited and corrected, with Clarke's original Notes restored, a bibliography and an illuminating introduction by Christopher Ricks, the poetry takes its place as one of the most compelling bodies of twentieth-century Irish poetry, available for a new generation of readers.
