Selected Poems | Medbh McGuckian

$17.95

Generous selections from each of Medbh McGuckian’s first five collections (from 1978–1994) serve as an introduction to this gloriously gifted—and pioneering—poet, as a stock-taking moment to reconsider her luxuriant constructions, and as a welcome occasion to learn further how to receive the signals of her opulent imagination.


Reviews

“This volume achieves exactly what a Selected Poems should: It is a splendid introduction to a lavishly gifted, complex writer, a point of entry into the manifold treasures of her oeuvre.”
– The Irish Times

“[T]his selection has been beautifully chosen to introduce her to a new audience. Here are classically clear, startling lyrics with a buried wildness: poems to break your heart and save it. . . . Marvelous.”
– The Poetry Book Society
