Summary

''Very personal, very free (if very precise) with common speech, altogether interesting and engaging''. -- Books Ireland ''His poems, especially when he speaks of love, express tenderness remarkable in a time when poets seem afraid to write with feeling. He works in skilful verse forms, yet his language is so suited to the thought as to seem perfectly natural...a delightful poet...I don't know of any other who writes with such affection of the everyday, our changing moods and chances''. -- Louis Simpson. After the jazz-like vitality of Haiti Madam Jazz, O'Siadhail explores the delicate networks and the powerful energies of modern life. It is a fragile city of trust and its betrayals. The poetry is cosmopolitan and passionate. Focusing where public and private life come together, it evokes a world both complex and vulnerable, but made habitable by trust, hospitality and even celebration.
