Description

Cathal O Searcaigh is one of the leading Irish poets of the past twenty-five years. His poetry is widely published in the original Irish and in translation. This book marks the first collection of critical essays dealing with his work. Gathered here are eight essays by Irish, American, and Japanese writers; an interview with the poet himself; original poems; and previously unpublished photographs and translations. The collection's international array of both contributors and perspectives reflects the breadth and scope of O Searcaigh's work, exploring such themes as language, place, religion, sexuality, and modernity.
