Description

The first showcase anthology produced under the editorship of Pat Boran, featuring a selection of Irish and international poets published by the Dedalus Press.

To celebrate its 21st year in publishing (2006), Pat Boran introduces Wingspan: A Dedalus Sampler, featuring recent and new work from 28 Irish and international poets on the Dedalus list whose range and diversity has come to be a hallmark of one of Ireland’s longest-running and best-known literary imprints.

The featured poets are: Chris Agee, Fergus Allen, Leland Bardwell, Pat Boran, Eva Bourke, Paddy Bushe, Padraig J Daly, Patrick Deeley, Gerard Fanning, Ann Joyce, Thomas Kinsella, Fred Marchant, James J McAuley, Gerry Murphy, Iggy McGovern, Michael O’Dea, Knut Odegard, John O’Donnell, Mary O’Donoghue, Desmond O’Grady, Amir Or, Paul Perry, Gabriel Rosenstock, Gerard Smyth, Dolores Stewart, Macdara Woods and Enda Wyley.

“The books from Dedalus now look superb, as befits the printing of serious verse… There is much in the Sampler: a brilliant moment of Wordworthian revelation in James McAuley (‘The Hill Walkers’); a keen immediacy in Pat Boran (‘Still Life’); the ascetic gentleness of Paddy Bushe; and much more… As they say in the ads: buy this book.”
— Robert Welch, Verbal
