Engaging both the intriguing past and the vibrant present of an unfamiliar and ethically diverse place, the first half of this new collection of poems explores the mysterious sides of New York. The second half of this consideration focuses on the very different land of Northern Ireland, discussing its troubles, the dynamics of ruined communities, and the recent influx of immigrants. Elegiac and celebratory, lively and mordant, this compilation illustrates a complicated sense of the connections between time and place.

Book Description Carcanet Press Ltd, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Frank Ormsby s new collection travels among places strange and familiar: from the shaping memories of an upbringing in rural County Fermanagh, to a Belfast reinventing itself in a new century and the exhilarating novelty of America. In the first part of Fireflies Ormsby explores the past and vibrant present of an area of New York State which he has visited for the past twelve years. It remains to him as elusive as the fugitive selves of the fireflies of the title. The latter part of the book engages with the poet s experience of his native Northern Ireland - the sour legacy of the Troubles, the dynamics of a community extending and remaking itself. Ormsby says he is by nature an anxious optimist , and these precisely lyrical poems are by turns elegiac and celebratory. Seller Inventory # UGH9781903039960
