RG Gregory s poetry is central to his concerns as a playwright, a dramaturg, a latter day Seer. His poems are fierce little pinpricks in the conventional veil of knowing understanding. Rooted in a very practical experience as a teacher and founder/initiator of the Word And Action theatre company, these poems take the reader on a journey through the ordinary, occasionally eavesdropping on odd, imperfect, imprecise echoes of the eternal. --Mick Fealty - Founding editor of the Irish culture and politics site Slugger O Toole
Intense at times, playfully relaxed at others, RG Gregory s poems are distilled from a lifetime s devotion to the spirit of creativity. They probe into the depths of human experience, and illuminate them with insight. His aim is consistent: to awaken the visionary, sleeping within each of us. --Richard Foreman - Story and comicstrip script writer, poet and graphic designer
About the Author
Gregory un-taught English and Drama for nineteen years before launching into the alternative to the alternative theatre for thirty years, all the time wrestling with the paradoxical relationship of Word and Action (Being and Doing) not that successfully. He has been involved in three personal (two married) partnerships, over sixty years, to women he has owed much to, and has had five children, cleverer than he is (a sixth died at thirteen days) and four grandchildren. So far, unintentionally, he has lived in fifty-one different postal addresses. A wartime Grammar-school evacuee, over two years as a post-war army conscript, and the unsettlement of his theatre years, have contributed to most of that. He has written too much and published too little. Born in 1928, very much a product of the Southern working-class, he has been primarily concerned with writing poetry and plays (since 1957 for performance-in-the-round). His views on the deep politics of life are infused into every word he has expressed, prosaically or poetically.
