Poetry. Trevor Joyce is one of those Irish poets, in the line of James Clarence Mangan, Brian Coffey, and Samuel Beckett, whose work explores new fields and modes rather than dwelling in the familiar. "He is a writer of great integrity and originality, his writing is both exciting and assured and his way of looking at the world is not arcane" - J.C.C. Mays, The Recorder. "His characteristic strengths are astonishing graces of language: he can fuse intricate argument with plain and lovely images and make all moving" - Eavan Boland, Irish Times.

Trevor Joyce (born 26 October 1947) is an Irish poet, born in Dublin. He co-founded New Writers' Press in Dublin in 1967 and was a founding editor of NWP's The Lace Curtain; A Magazine of Poetry and Criticism in 1968. Early books include Sole Glum Trek (1967), Watches (1968), Pentahedron (1972) and The Poems of Sweeny Peregrine (1976). The last of these is a version of the Middle-Irish Buile Shuibhne, well known from Seamus Heaney's later translation in Sweeney Astray (1983).
