Overview

The five most recent volumes of poetry published by Thomas Kinsella’s own Peppercanister Press—Marginal Economy, Man of War, Belief and Unbelief, Fat Master, and Love Joy Peace—are gathered together in this collection of the Irish luminary’s late work. Each volume is a coherent whole but also constitutes a section of the ongoing project of his writing, and together the sections explore the great themes of the spirit, the body, and the body politic. The poems themselves—and sometimes even their syntax—remain open-ended and susceptible to new experience, opening up a new world of possibility to readers time after time. This collection offers a unique opportunity to become acquainted with the work of a writer at the heart of modern Irish poetry who is an heir of the tradition bestowed by W. B. Yeats, Ezra Pound, and W. H. Auden.
