$11.95

Reviews

“Montague’s The Rough Field is a remarkable primer for those who would truly understand the division of Ireland today.”
– James Coleman, The Compass

“John Montague’s The Rough Field is a kind of ‘state of the nation’ poem, built up of visions and glimpses of locality, legend, and history, and as such it is astonishingly successful; moving, too, and as soundly crafted as the rosewood fiddle which seems to play with mourning sweetness in the margins.”
– John Bayley, The New York Review
