Dedicated to Irish Poetry

Gone Self Storm

$14.95

For half a century of ever-broadening vision, award-winning poet Harry Clifton has addressed what the Irish Times calls “his large concerns and his angular relationship to Ireland, one that produces extraordinary verbal and emotional effects.” His latest book is a quest—through origin and migration, South America to the North of Ireland, Khao I Dang refugee camp to Glasnevin graveyard—for a lost maternal ground.


Praise for Harry Clifton

“Soul, song and formal necessity, Clifton has all three—he is one of the poets who matter.”
– Derek Mahon

“These poems…cut through the mist, like a fog lamp, with their own sharp-edged clarities… There is ambition here.”
– Benjamin Keatinge

“Much like Joyce, he’s one of these people who writes about Ireland with the great insight that only a sense of self-exile can bring.”
– Jessica Traynor, RTÉ Radio 1’s Arena, on Herod’s Dispensations (Irish Poetry books of 2019)
