Praise for The Wake Forest Series of Irish Poetry

“Wake Forest … has always been a pioneer—almost the pioneer—in introducing new Irish poetry to American readers. It will be interesting to see which poets from Ireland’s standing army the press decides to present next.”
– Poetry Ireland Review

“A superb introduction to contemporary Irish poetry.”
– Wisconsin Bookwatch

“Given the number of twentieth-century Irish poets who are household names (Yeats, Kavanagh, MacNeice, Heaney), it’s a wonder that later generations aren’t tongue-tied or at least deterred. … I have the work of living poets in front of me to say it isn’t so.”
Sewanee Review

“Traditional music or postmodernism, there is a breadth of subject-matter and style on show throughout this generous anthology, offering many signs that Irish poetry can still play the true air and maintain a trajectory of emotion and sensibility.”
– Matthew Campbell, Breac
