Product Description

About the Author

Austin Clarke (1896-1974), playwright and leading Irish poet of the generation after Yeats, was educated at University College Dublin. He worked in England as a journalist, returning to Dublin in 1937. The Vengeance of Fionn, the first of eighteen books of verse, appeared in 1917; his Collected Poems in the year of his death. He promoted verse drama through the Dublin Verse-Speaking Society which he formed in 1941. His first novel, The Bright Temptation (1932), was banned in Ireland until 1954.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a brand new anthology of Clarks word and mightly over due. His poetry is majesterial and raw, a vivid portrait of Ireland in early 20th century. What I like most about Clarkes work is the pacing and language, its rhthym and balance. He is truly one of the great poets of our age. His poems linger on in the memory long after one has read them, They demand time and thought to decipher and understand. The language is is its own pleasure, they are also cerebreal and colourful. I dare any one to read the straying student and not be taken to places one did not even existed.
