About this title


Iron Mountain Road follows Dyckman - - 200 Street (Salmon, 1994), Eamonn Wall's widely praised first book. Here is a collection which chronicles the process of migration - from the bustle, high buildings, and close living of New York City to the empty wide open spaces, and often desolate but magnificent American prairie and high plains. This is an innovative book which describes aspects of the Irish immigrant experience which has been hitherto ignored. The Platte River in Nebraska and the Black Hills of South Dakota are brought brilliantly to life by a consciousness formed in County Wexford and New York, and it is often to these starting points that Wall turns to for confirmation. Other important concerns are history, parenthood and the sea.

About the Author:

Eamonn Wall is a leading poetic voice among the 'New Irish' writers living in the United States who describes the emigrant experience with great honesty and by using innovative forms. Features of Iron Mountain Road are the long lines and prose poems which are employed to great effect to describe the enormous space the poet encounters, and which also facilitate Wall's desire to write a poetry laden with the deep rhythms of ordinary life. Iron Mountain Road is a moving and brilliant collection which confirms Eamonn Wall as a daring and original poet and as spokesman for frequently marginalized, but never silent exiles. Wall gives eloquent voice to a lost generation - the exiles of the 1980s and 1990s.
