As If By Magic : Selected Poems by Paula Meehan

18.00

This collection of poems by Paula Meehan gathers together work published between 1991 and 2016 from collections that have been lauded, awarded and widely translated. Collections that have gained a large audience and a considerable reputation, nationally and internationally, by one of Ireland’s foremost poets and most distinctive voices.

A great deal has changed in the world in the arc of time covered by these poems, and those changes are noted and considered by poems that are remarkable for their clear-eyed witness. Meehan’s devotion to, and mastery of, her craft, has always been one of the key signatures of her work, as has been her immersion in her beloved native Dublin. In her Selected Poems we see this and more – her uncompromising engagement with the politics of gender and class, her love of the natural world and her grief at what threatens it, her holistic and visionary impulse to bless the creation, and to be grateful for her place in it.
