about this item

Many of the poems in Sean O’Brien’s new collection take their emotional tenor and imaginative cue from his acclaimed translation ofDante’s Inferno, and occupy a dark, flooded, subterranean world, as dramatically compelling as it is disquieting. Circumstances have compelled O’Brien to return repeatedly to the elegiac form, andThe Drowned Book contains a number of powerfully moving poems written in memory of fellow poets and artists.The Drowned Book again shows O’Brien as master of the authoritative line, and underscores his pre-eminence among contemporary English poets.
