About this title


The poems in THE BLIND STITCH interweave family, marriage, love, and friendship into a larger world of public life. Set in Greg Delanty's native Ireland, in America, and in India, the book is sewn together with two main conceits and arranged thematically in the form of a palindrome. One of the conceits is that of the leper, which concerns personal and public suffering and complicity; the other is that of needlework, the threads that run through our public and private lives, seen and unseen, stitching us all together.

About the Author:

A native of Cork, Ireland, Greg Delanty now lives in Vermont, where he teaches at St. Michael's College. He is a beneficiary of the Royal Literary Fund and a recipient of the Patrick Kavanagh Award and the Austin Clarke Centenary Poetry Award, among other honors. He is the author of four previous volumes of poetry: The Hellbox, American Wake, Southward, and Cast in Fire.
