Format: Paperback
This is a reissue of Donaghy's first two collections, Shibboleth and Errata. With Conjure they make up the entire work. I first came across Errata and came away reeling. He is one of the most exciting poets I've come across, with a combination of metaphisical wit which at is best is the equal to Donne, fantastic rhythms, and great emotion lightly worn. One of the reasons why reading poetry can be a real high point in ones life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not to Be Missed 25 Sept. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Donaghy--an expatriot New Yorker who has lived for many years in London--is a rare voice in contemporary poetry. His poems are wickedly smart, formally adept, and truly moving. His poems are little miracles of compression, containing more smarts and emotion in a few lines than most contemporary poets pack into an entire collection. Definitely worthwhile.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Master Who Sidesteps Categorization 11 Nov. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is one of the finest collections I've read in years - wildly imaginative, moving, and technically accomplished. I find it specially compelling because it incorporates all the imaginative daring of early modernism with an elegant mastery of traditional forms.
