In 2001, Poetry Review remarked on '[t]he impressive gravitas and beauty' of his poetry, which 'leave one hoping that it won't be a long wait before McCabe's first book is out.' In The New Irish Poets (Bloodaxe, 2004) editor Selina Guinness echoed the sentiment: 'The complexity of his verse forms is matched by an emotional maturity... and the acrobatic poise of his work promises great things for his first collection.' Awarding McCabe The Rupert and Eithne Strong Award for Poetry at the Poetry Now festival (PN04), John McAuliffe remarked on the poems' unusually wide range of reference and McCabe's 'mastery of form'. Widely published over the years in magazines and anthologies (most recently in Penguin Ireland's Windharp: Poems of Ireland since 1916) his poems are now finally brought together in a generous selection spanning the last twenty years or more. Outer Space: Selected Poems marks the end of Cathal McCabe's long 'underground reputation' (Dennis O'Driscoll) and makes available to a wider audience his award-winning verse in a landmark publication by Metre Editions.
