Overview

Collected Poems: Austin Clarke by Austin Clarke

Long out of print, these collected poems reflect the career of one of the best Irish poets of the 20th century, as important as Patrick Kavanagh, Thomas Kinsella, or Seamus Heaney. His work is distinguished by the influence of Gaelic poetry and was important in drawing the public's attention to the Irish modernists. This collection was compiled in 1974—the year of Clarke's death—and has been updated with a new introduction and expanded notes.
