South Dublin Libraries Poetry Day Ireland event: Eilean Ní Chuilleanáin in conversation with Jessica Traynor
Eilean Ní Chuilleanáin will read from the landmark publication of her Collected Poems and be in conversation with Jessica Traynor.
Recently shortlisted for the 2021 Pigott Poetry Prize Collected Poems contains work from more than fifty years and nine collections and includes new, previously unpublished poems.
Collected Poems is a uniquely compelling body of work that has the coherence and inevitability of a natural growth. It is a fitting monument to her passionate concern to ride ‘the horses of meaning’ and to ‘let their hooves print the next bit of the story.’ — David Cooke, The Manchester Review
