Description

Subtitled A Sampler of Work 1987 – 2008, this is a generous overview of the work of a much-admired, ever inventive Irish poet.

The selection in this volume, made by the poet himself, draws on the extensive ‘Things That Happen’ project (1981—2006), as well as three new books, Several Dances, Humming & Work.

“I have found Scully is best read in public places, a beach or a bus shelter when people are around … I laugh a lot. He’s a good-natured poet and that transfers. While the reputed strangeness in Scully’s work is rooted in the ordinary obvious, the flowers it produces are truly exotic.”— Augustus Young, Golden Handcuffs Review

“For me, Scully is one of the very best Irish poets alive today.”— Mike Begnal, Fortnight

“A light for the language indeed.”— Harry Gilonis, The Gig

About The Author

Author

Maurice Scully was born in Dublin in 1952 and spent his childhood between Clare, the Ring Gaeltacht and Dublin. He was educated at Trinity College, Dublin, after which he spent some restless decades between Ireland, Italy, Greece and Africa. In a writing career that began in the early ‘70s he has published over a dozen volumes of poetry and taken part in conferences and festivals in the UK & US where his readings are prized as key interpretations of his complex, engaging work. The selection in this volume, made by the poet himself, draws on the extensive 'Things That Happen' project (1981—2006), as well as three new books, Several Dances, Humming & Work.
