Sinead Morrissey is one of the new generation of young Irish poets who has emerged in the wake of Heaney, and I think that some of these poems bear comparison to his. Like Heaney, she is not afraid to touch on subjects like darkness within the family and personal relationships, there is one very moving poem called 'Sea Stones' about domestic violence. While there is a lot of free verse here, she has also gone on record as saying that form can be useful, and indeed there are fine examples of sonnets and villanelles here, showing that there is room for both in modern poetry.
