Dedicated to Irish Poetry

My Love Has Fared Inland

$12.95

An elaborate collage of such themes as death, writing, nature, and love, Medbh McGuckian’s My Love Has Fared Inland shows how failure, loss, the play of seasons, and light are the subjects of her spiritual and creative journey. McGuckian’s poetry has always been self-reflexive and introverted, celebrating the aesthetic of language while mistrusting linguistic representation.

Note on the cover: The cover is a photo montage from images primarily by Wake Forest University students.


Reviews

“One of the most gifted—if not THE most gifted—of the post-War generation of Irish poets, Medbh McGuckian’s new book is a masterpiece of psychic map-making. Her latest journey to the ‘Inland’ of her distinctive poetic world is full of the pencil-marks of invaluable loci, astonishing encounters, whirlpools of inner thought, of Irish desolation and worldly, linguistic redemption. Read this book, treasure it, let it make waves as it pulls you into the McGuckian inlands.”
