Boekbeschrijving

First published in 2005, New and Selected Poems by Pat Boran presents a large selection of work by one of the best-known of the younger Irish poets. Introduced by Dennis O'Driscoll, for whom Boran is "a poet of mystery and fulfilment, of the eternal and numinous no less than the earthly and the everyday," New and Selected Poems features work from all of his earlier publications as well as a selection of newer work. "Pat Boran's poems make magic out of found things, and his metaphors light the dark like Roman candles. He is a master of his language; beyond that, he makes poetry matter to me again." -Gerard Donovan (author of Schopenhauer's Telescope and Doctor Salt) PAT BORAN was born in Portlaoise in 1963 and now lives in Dublin where he is publisher of the Dedalus Press and presenter of The Poetry Programme on RTE Radio 1. Since receiving the Patrick Kavanagh Poetry Award in 1989, he has pub-lished four widely-praised collections, The Unwound Clock (1990), Familiar Things (1993), The Shape of Water (1996) and As the Hand, the Glove (2001), as well as works of fiction and non-fiction including the popular writers' handbook, The Portable Creative Writing Workshop (1999/2005), and the Bisto Book of the Year shortlisted children's title, All the Way from China (1998). Volumes of his poetry have appeared in Hungarian, Macedonian and Italian, and are currently in preparation in other languages. In 2007 he was elected to membership of Aosdana, the Irish academy of artists."
