Represented in all modern anthologies by his great poem on Irish history "A Disused Shed in Co. Wexford", Derek Mahon is regarded with Heaney and Longley as the leader of the resurgence of Irish poetry from the late 60s onwards. He writes lyric poetry of enormous wit, elegance and scepticism. Penguin published his first Selected Poems in 1990 - this new, expanded edition revisits the older work but also contains important new work from his most recent volume, HARBOUR LIGHTS.

Born in 1941 in Belfast, Mahon read French at Trinity College, Dublin. His first book NIGHT CROSSING was published by OUP in 1968. He moved to London in the 70s where he worked as a literary journalist, but now lives again in Dublin.
