About The Author

Author

Iggy McGovern was born in 1948 in Coleraine. Since 1979 he has resided in Dublin, where he lectured in Physics at Trinity College until retirement in 2013. He has published two collections of poetry with Dedalus Press, The King of Suburbia (2005) and Safe House (2010). He edited the anthology 20|12: Twenty Irish Poets Respond to Science in Twelve Lines (Dedalus/Quaternia. 2012). Awards include The Hennessy Award for Poetry and The Glen Dimplex New Writers Award for Poetry. His most recent publication is A Mystic Dream of 4, a poetic biography of William Rowan Hamilton (Quaternia. 2013). PERSONAL STATEMENT "My poetry is characterised by form & rhyme and humour; it also reflects my professional career as a physicist. I am interested in exploring the common ground between Science and Literature." REVIEW EXCERPT “Light, rarely lightweight, McGovern’s voice is very much his own … unaffectedly honest, instructive and entertaining” — Eamon Grennan, The Irish Times, 2011
