Product description


'There is plenty of quietly glittering intellect in these poems... he has an eye for rural things, birds, plants, weather; all are subdued to the colour of his own mind, its knowledge of loss, its recurrent perception of the world as a place to which it belongs and does not belong... this collection amply demonstrates Kavanagh's distinguished place among contemporary poets. Frank Kermode


It has been said of P.J. Kavanagh that mysteries are a part of the everyday clothing of his mind, leaving his mind free to deal with realities. The poems in this collection celebrate small pleasures (cricket commentaries, blackbirds' songs) as well as the greater mysteries of enduring friendships, the unexpected force of religious images; the growth towards wisdom - above all, the sudden visitations of joy that transfigure the commonplace.
