View all copies of this ISBN edition:

A substantial collection of poetry from one of Ireland's best-known authors. The style is strong and vibrant, full of striking images, living atmosphere, and dramatic narrative. There is continuous movement, not only from incident to incident but also through depths of meaming, as the author sends his thoughts travelling through a world often hostile to creative feeling. The encounters give rise to a mix of realism and imaginative alternative, and all coalesces into poetic vision of stirring aesthetic power. There are many vistas, varying in mood and epoch, making every experience contemporaneous. The work of O hOgain again and again recovers the imagery of the moment before it fades from consciousness, and perpetuates it in a sensitive and creative setting. He has a shamanic flair, and these poems point the way to an exciting appreciation of culture and human identity. Few poets bring to their trade a comparable degree of cultural experience. Reared in a culture steeped in traditional lore, O hOgain is a leading authority on folklore and mythology, but is also widely read in philosophy and modern literature. All of his work shows a strong commitment to humanistic values in the face of an increasingly impersonal and mechanical social order and the tyranny of sameness.
