Wake: Up to Poetry
Enter the Goodreads giveaway for Live Streaming!
Live Streaming is Conor O’Callaghan’s fifth poetry volume and will be published November 1, 2018. Shortlisted for the Irish Times Poetry Now Award, this is a volume of many styles and themes, whether it is the life of a caravan park, an ode to marriage, or a schoolboy empathizing with Petrarch’s love for Laura and idolizing a heavyweight boxer. The centerpiece is the long multi-genre “His Last Legs,” which dramatizes the troubled inheritance from O’Callaghan’s father and finely balances other more condensed and lyrical poems.
