About this item
A Poet’s Dublin is an exploration, in images and poems, of the life, sometimes the hidden life, of the city of Dublin. Written over years, the poems seek out shadows and impressions of a powerful, historic city, studying how it forms and alters language, memory, and selfhood. They range from an evocation of the neighborhoods under the hills where the poet lived and raised her children to the inner-city bombing of 1974. Above all, these poems weave together the story of a self and a city—private, political, and bound by history. The poems are supported by photographs of the city at all times, in all seasons: from dawn on the river Liffey, which flows through Dublin, to twilight up in its foothills.
