3 POEMS by MACDARA WOODS

Macdara Woods is one of the senior and most distinctive voices in contemporary Irish poetry. Collected Poems, published in 2012, is a generous overview of his many collections from his 1970 debut to 2011’s The Cotard Dimension, alongside a number of new poems and poems previously uncollected. Politically alert, lyrical, and formally adventurous, Woods’ poems expand the range of contemporary Irish poetry.
