Speech Lessons

$12.95

One of the most beloved voices in all of Ireland, John Montague is a master. Speech Lessons depicts the many ways in which a voice may be silenced, as well as released. Autobiographical poems reveal both his personal history and his country’s, with humor, nostalgia, disappointment and affection, and more than a “titter of wit.”

Shortlisted for the DLR Poetry Now Award 


Reviews

“[H]e is a world-class poet, one of that extraordinary group—perhaps a dozen?—who illuminate our lives, not just for as long as words have meaning.”
— Carolyn Kizer
