Format: Paperback
I am a huge fan of Medbh McGuckian, despite her obscurity. I was delighted to hear that this book was being published and ordered a copy immediately. Unfortunately, I find it considerably more confusing than the poetry it sets out to elucidate! It's full of academic jargon and builds no bridges whatsoever for the lay reader who wishes to access this poet's remarkable body of work. I am more convinced than ever that one simply has to let McGuckian work her subliminal magic ... at least until someone more skilled than Ms Flynn puts pen to paper!
