Summary

The 'Collected Poems' of the distinguished poet Thomas Kinsella contains virtually all his poems, written over the last forty years. The early books, of the 1950s and '60s, include occasional poems, lyrics, and historical and political sequences. Then follow poems of local and family settings, with a growing mythical and allegorical element. Later comes a more public poetry ('Butcher's Dozen, ' for instance, on the Bloody Sunday shootings in Derry in 1972.)
