Deò hosts a beautiful, haunting, and astounding collection of poems. Marcas Mac an Tuairneir is a great wordsmith and poet - hard to believe this is his first publication.

I was captivated from the foreword to the final words of Deò - all in all a wonderful publication.

(Read in the English) Despite the predictable leanings of the Gael towards the dark and the ominous this collection of poems shows occasional flashes of brilliance. These are most apparent in the "Lovecycle" section. Mainly I suspect because these are the poets most personal and deeply felt. I particularly like "Edinburgh" despite its on the face of it somewhat sleazy subtext it betrays an honesty and a yearning that feels authentic. Although couched in terms of longing and with hints of loss these are deeply felt and expressed poems.
The "Aberdeen" and "Alicante" sections I felt less drawn to and sensed more of an artist trying out his form than an original voice. The same goes for the "Songs".
Mark is at his best and most moving when he speaks from the heart on matters of the heart and doesn't try to fit into Gaeldom.
