The Deep Heart's Core: Irish Poets Revisit a Touchstone Poem By Pat Boran (Editor), Eugene O'Connell (Editor) Cover Image
By Pat Boran (Editor), Eugene O'Connell (Editor)


In The Deep Heart's Core some 100 Irish poets accept the invitation to revisit a favourite, key or touchstone poem of their own, and offer a short commentary on same -- as they might at a live event. The result is an illuminating, thought-provoking and wholly engaging volume, a unique anthology as selected by the poets themselves, and a rare glimpse into the thinking, feeling and craft behind the finished poems. The Deep Heart's Core is both an ideal introduction to contemporary Irish poetry for the general reader and a handbook for the aspiring practitioner or student.
