About this Item

First American edition. 8vo, publisher’s original brown cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine and upper cover, in the pictorially illustrated dustjacket. 66. A very fine copy, as pristine, very minimally mellowed on the spine panel. A good group of very interesting reviews and clippings laid in at the front of the book A MASTERFUL COLLECTION. "At the center of this collection is a sonnet sequence set in Glanmore, where the poet lived for four years after having left the turbulence of Belfast in 1972. Themes apparent elsewhere in the book are concentrated in these poems: the individual’s responsibility for his own choices, the artist’s commitment to his vocation, the vulnerability of all in the face of circumstance and death. There are also groups of love poems and elegies - in memory of Francis Ledwidge, Robert Lowell, and Sean O’Rieda, among others - as well as a powerful translation of two Cantos from Dante’s" Inferno.".
