The New Estate and Other Poems keeps in print Ciaran Carson's earliest work. It embraces traditional subjects and treatments, translations from Early Irish and Welsh, and a number of more contemporary themes ('The Bomb Disposal', 'Dunne'). It rehearses the use of idiom and phrasing elaborated and perfected in The Irish for No. In some of its narrative energy and procedures it is a harbinger of that groundbreaking collection. In some of its restraint it anticipates the exquisitely pared delicacies of his collection, Breaking News, winner of the Forward Prize, 2003.
