"generations of poets, in Ireland as well as Britain, who have learned so much from NacNeice--formally as well as in other ways--who provide the most potent argument for his poetry's continuing life. Two Irish poets in particular--Derek Mahon and Paul Muldoon--would be unrecognisable without MacNeice's example and influence..." from Peter McDonald's Introduction to the U. S. edition

Ileana Mӑlӑncioiu is considered a hero and visionary in Romania, where she lived under the oppressive Ceauşescu regime, learning to make oblique statement both her art and political instrument. Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin studied Romanian so she could movingly translate these poems and their powerful message. The use of legend, fable, and myth is richly important to both poets, resulting in a book of remarkable poetic compatibility.
The revised, expanded edition of the original groundbreaking anthology. With seven new poets in addition to the original nine.

"A Hundred Doors offers more portals behind which await the ‘soul-arenas’ of Longley’s fertile imagination; another milestone on the journey, an addendum to everything fine that he has given before, and the hope that more will come.” The Scotsman
