To Star the Dark by Doireann N? Ghr?ofa

12.65

Do our passions control us or us them? These poems find themselves asking such questions in hospitals, in cellars, in Parisian parks and American laundromats, inside our screens and beyond them. Poems of blood and birdsong, of rain and desire, of aftermath and ambivalence, each spoken by a voice, which – like the starlings – sings, at once, both past and present.

“Looking into the dark sky of history, Doireann Ní Ghríofa calls up an illuminating fire, a night constellated into images of passion and destruction. An astrologer of the body, its endurance and its vulnerability, Ni Ghriofa is a poet of daring skill. Lyrical, searching and enchanted, To Star the Dark is a blazing, brave collection.” – Sean Hewitt
