Praise for Aidan Murphy

There is a strong streak of intelligent defiance coursing through Murphy’s poetry’ - The Irish Times ‘Murphy is one of the least affected, most affecting voices around.
— The Sunday Tribune
A poet of passionate intensity, Aidan Murphy is still one of the freshest, and certainly one of the most compassionate, voices in Irish poetry today.
— Irish Examiner
There is a cold, not-to-be-fooled, intellect at work here; the imagery and free-verse forms are exciting and fully realised; the poetry, beautifully controlled and modulated.
— Irish Independent
