Maurice Scully was born in Dublin in 1952 and spent his childhood between Clare, the Ring Gaeltacht (or Irish-speaking part of Ireland) and Dublin. He was educated at Trinity College, Dublin, after which he spent some restless decades between Ireland, Italy, Greece and Africa. In a writing career that began in the early '70s he has published over a dozen volumes of poetry and taken part in conferences and festivals in the UK & US where his readings are prized as key interpretations of his complex, engaging work. The selection in this volume, subtitled A Sampler of Work 1987-2008, was made by the poet himself and draws on the extensive Things That Happen project (1981-2006), as well as three new books, Several Dances, Humming & Work.
