Product Description

Subtitled ‘Irish Poets on Irish Poetry’, Flowing Still is a prose survey of just over a century of Irish verse by some of its best known practitioners.

A decade on from the major anthology Watching the River Flow (Poetry Ireland / Éigse Éireann, 1999), Dedalus Press reissues the ten introductory essays from that book, by some of the best-known names in contemporary Irish poetry (Eavan Boland, Ciaran Carson, Seamus Heaney, Thomas Kinsella, Michael Longley, John Montague, Eiléan Ní Chuilleanáin, Nuala Ní Dhomhnaill, Bernard O’Donoghue and Cathal Ó Searcaigh) bringing the survey up to the present day with the addition of essays by Pat Boran, Theo Dorgan, Eamon Grennan and David Wheatley, as well as an informed outsider’s view of the subject by distinguished American poet, now resident in Ireland, Richard Tillinghast.

Flowing, Still: Irish Poets on Irish Poets is an ideal introduction to the subject of recent Irish poetry, both for students and the general reader alike.
