Kavanagh was one of the first Irish poets to create poetry out of local and native backgrounds. Though many of his poems were published posthumously, the quality and breadth of his work makes some of today's so called 'experts' look pale in comparison. His poetry is direct, unpretentious, personal and often very moving. It is also refreshingly ‘real’. Kavanagh could convey the magic of ordinary and often harsh rural life in his poems. Even though he may be not recognised internationally, Kavanagh's impact on modern Irish poetry has been and will be enormous.

This book provides an excellent selection of Kavanagh's poems including all the most famous and best. Don't be put off by the remarks below - this is an excellent book at a great price. Treat yourself to arguably the best Parochial poetry ever written, rivalling that of R.S. Thomas.

For a lady who comes from the area there are 2 major errors which make a mess of everything else. See pages 154 and 161...sole-plate is not a horseshoe and diddy is not a vagina
