Synopsis: This is Michael Smith's first collection since his Collected Poems of 2009, and is an elegiac volume. As the author says: "Let me try to define prayer as I am using it here. It is a voice in the head, ours and not ours. It speaks in words we scarcely understand. Unstoppable, unless distracted by our quotidian pursuits. Beckett said it thus: 'All poetry, as discriminated from the various paradigms of prosody is prayer.' Enigmatic, but what else would one expect from Beckett? Essentially, I perceive prayer as a form of homage or 'recognition'-the other word used by Beckett."

About the Author: Michael Smith is a Dublin poet whose Collected Poems was published by Shearsman Books in 2009. His translations, many in collaboration with Luis Ingelmo, of Spanish and South America poets are numerous and have been critically acclaimed. He is a member of Aosdana, the Irish National Academy of Artists.
