Marconi’s Cottage

$8.95

In the deft and mysterious poems of Marconi’s Cottage, McGuckian evokes the uncanny presence of a muse whose “unseduceable two rows of small black doors” hinge life and death, the two sides of a single page, views from a room that faces in and out.


Reviews

“[L]ike Dickinson, whose own deceptively tidy stanzas McGuckian’s rather recall . . . McGuckian experiences the usual as unusual, the unusual as exotic and perilous. McGuckian’s poems are discontinuous, eagerly digressive, open-ended, riddled with enigma, fluid as dreams . . . Living from moment to moment, flouting logical sequence and mimesis, they constitute a poetry of motion and transformation.”
– Stephen Yenser, Poetry
