The poems in this, Mc Cabe's first collection, reflect his belief in the druidic function of poetry. The metaphor of silence presents, while honouring writers and the late Prof. Augustine Martin, both the grave and the birthplace of language. The poems shift from suburban Dublin to the West of Ireland, notably Clare Island. A long poem focuses on World War II to explore the futility of violence and the mystery of suffering.

From Kirkus Reviews:

paper 1-901233-32-4 The White Battlefield Of Silence ($19.95; paper $12.95; Oct. 11; 96 pp.; 1-901233-32-2; paper 1-901233-32-4) is a first collection by a young Irish poet that has far more depth and texture than the typical American debut but still it suffers from the same heaviness the young are prone to across the globe. History and meaning seem to be McCabes stock-in-trade, and hes not beneath finding inspiration in linguisticsnor above dedicating the ensuing work (Etymology) to Drue Heinz! In fact, most of the volume seems to be an homage to somebody or other, from Percy Place (for Thomas Kinsella) to Fear and Misery in the Third Reich (after Brecht). McCabe has a good sense of place and uses it to best advantage in many pieces (Coole Park and Ballylee, 1995, for example, or Clare Island Revisited), but the volume as a whole has a sense of overbearing, overeager seriousness to it. -- Copyright ©1999, Kirkus Associates, LP.
