About this title

Synopsis:

"Guru i gCluidini" is the first new poetry collection from the Donegal poet in six years and O Searcaigh fans will see in this work much of his signature style and themes, as well as the evident influence of his ties with Nepal. O Searcaigh has described this collection as a distillation of his previous work, with the subjects of language, place and tradition still to the fore, but this time encompassing a larger terrain of emotions. He says of the poems in this collection: They aspire towards the light but are more apprehensive of the dark than previous poems of mine. They emerge song-like from the murk of the psyche. They have a lonesomeness about them, a realization that we are all of us alone, however much we strive to be part of something. That is the dan, the destiny, of all us mortals. The poems in the book are presented in sequences, tending towards the idea of an epic, and include "Oilean na Marbh", a poem which O Searcaigh was commissioned to write last summer. It takes as its subject the small islands off the coast of Donegal where unbaptized children were buried. The book features artwork by Ian Joyce. O Searcaigh is from Min an Lea in the Donegal Gaeltacht, and spends several months every year in Nepal. He has an adopted son there, Prem Timalsina, and a grandson, Prashant, who is celebrated in two poems in the new collection, one of which lends its name to the book, Guru i gCluidini, which translates as Guru in Nappies. Although O Searcaigh has not published a collection of new poems in several years, he has not been idle. His first prose work, "Seal i Neipeal", an account of his time in Nepal, was published by Clo Iar-Chonnachta in 2004. He has also had several poetry collections in translation published, including "By the Hearth in Min a' Lea", Arc Publications 2005, the Poetry Book Society Recommended Translation, with English translations by Frank Sewell, Denise Blake and Seamus Heaney.
