This is an excellent anthology. The reader can get an understanding of who the poets were and an authentic sense of Irish life. Half of the book is written in Irish followed by its English translation on the opposite page, adding to the realness.

I bought this book for class. I thought I would only read a few of the poems for class and never pick it up again. Just put the book down after having read the entire collection. Great buy. Wonderful collection of Irish poetry.

A near-model anthology
on 20 April 2000 - Published on Amazon.com
I use this book, together with Paul Muldoon's Contemporary Irish Poetry and Fallon/Mahon's Contemporary Irish Poetry as texts for Adult Education.Crotty's book has 47 poets and gives a short insightful introduction to every poet. It is a wide-ranging book, including 3 modernist poets, 5 poets who write in Irish--for which there are sensitive translations by Crotty himself as well as Muldoon and Heaney. Most space is given to Muldoon, Heaney, Kavanagh, MacNeice, Kinsella, Durcan, Clarke, O Riordáin, and Ní Dhomhnaill in that order. The poems are generally well chosen. Ciaran Carson is represented, and the other fine young poet in Irish Cathal O Searcaigh. There is the good humor of Durcan, Duhig and McDonald. My students feel warmly about the book, and are writing surprisingly good poems of their own as response to it.
