Kinsella says of it that he is offering close readings of a few notable works in the form of a type of response suggested by Coleridge for the appreciation of a poem. These are primary readings, taking account of textual detail, method and structure. The texts are taken as initiating an act of communication, and the reading is offered as a completion of the act, the poem read "at its own pace". Kinsella takes two sonnets by Shakespeare, "The Tower" by W.B. Yeats, and Eliot's "Prufrock" poem and offers a close reading on these lines, offering an introduction that explains what he is about.

About the Author:

Thomas Kinsella was born in Dublin in 1928. He attended University College, Dublin, entering the Civil Service in 1946. He has taught in the United States and established and administered the Irish Tradition study programme in Dublin, retiring in 1992. He was a director of the Dolmen Press and Cuala Press, Dublin, and in 1972 established Peppercanister Press. He is best known as a major poet (published by Dolmen, Peppercanister and Oxford University Press), a translator (of The Tain and Poems of the Dispossessed) and a radical anthologist (of the New Oxford Book of Irish Verse). His most recent book of poems, From Centre City, was published in 1994 by Oxford.

Review:

"One could spend hours untangling the skeins of etymologies and historical allusions Kinsella has woven together in these poems."
