Über diesen Titel


A collection of poetry which uses Ireland for a starting point or implied focus. It is an Ireland often sighted through disturbing perspectives derived from foreign cultures such as Homer's "Odyssey", World War II and the Holocaust. This is the winner of the 1991 Whitbread Prize for Poetry.


"A contemporary who should endure over the life of our language" (Donald Hall)


One of the finest lyric poets of our century

" (John Burnside)

"Longley may not possess, or want, the international glamour of some of his contemporaries, but the poems in Gorse Fires, both individually and collectively, bewitch with the magic of coherence" (Carol Ann Duffy Guardian)

"A keeper of the artistic estate, a custodian of griefs and wonders" (Seamus Heaney)

"Michael Longley's poems have matched a sense of history and the brutal present with a recurrent feeling for the lyrical moment and the fragility of experience" (James Fenton)
