Praise for Tom MacIntyre

The words are all that matter; each word is given full force as if the reader was hearing it spoken for the first time. Everything lives in the words on the page, literally, because MacIntyre’s language becomes a route in and out of experience.
— The Irish Times
MacIntyre is a shaman. These are strange and beautiful poems from a strange and beautiful territory.
— Marina Carr
I have admired Tom MacIntyre’s work for many years. There is something heroic about his independence of mind and his idiosyncratic practice. By turns disenchanted and ecstatic, cantankerous and amorous, he resembles the solitary figure in the landscape whose unexpected presence somehow assembles the scene.
— Michael Longley
