Anthony Cronin, for long an outstanding figure on the Irish literary landscape, is, in his eighties, still writing poetry. Indeed this new collection contains some the most remarkable and profound poetry he has written. It displays once again his superb lyrical gift, his honesty to common human experience and his tenderness about relationships, as well, of course, as the humour and sheer poetic intelligence that are a hallmark of his work. In this new book these qualities are balanced by a new depth of his philosophical reflection and existential seriousness.

Praise for Anthony Cronin

Cronin is one of our finest and most dedicated poets, his work stretching back more than fifty years to a time of unequivocal reality. ...His warm commitment and tenacious artistry remind us of the supreme value of the enterprise’ - Derek Mahon ‘...what I value most is the thrill of his use of language, the pitch of one man’s unmmistakable voice.
— Paul Durcan
