Description

Collectred Poems is a comprehensive overview of the work of Donegal based, Fermanagh born poet, Francis Harvey, “a Basho-like figure” in the words of Moya Cannon who contributes an Introduction to the book.

“Representing a life given over to the work of making poems, this collected volume is a handsome testament to the fidelity with which Harvey has pursued, wrestled with, and mastered, his craft.” — The Irish Times

“Perhaps no other Irish writer has claimed a space as well as this poet. Not even Kavanagh. He knows its skies, its islands, its headlands, its beaches, its fence posts, its rocks, its trees. He knows its small towns and its people. Each poem stands alone, but all build into a masterful composition. No one is spared from this work of art. Even the poet himself, is snared in the dripping amber of this poetry … Do not go to Donegal without this voice. It is half shepherd, half sheep. And quite Beautiful.” — www.dublinka.com
