About this title

Synopsis:

The poetic sequence of The Great Cloak, first published in 1978, recounts the loss of love and its recovery in a new and growing relationship.

About the Author:

John Montague was born in Brooklyn, New York, in 1929. A few years later his family returned to County Tyrone, Northern Ireland, where he was raised. He was educated at University College, Dublin, where he received his BA and MA degrees. In 1955 he received an MFA from the University of Iowa. Before beginning a career of college teaching, he worked as a Paris correspondent for The Irish Times. He has taught at universities in France, Ireland, Canada, and the United States. In 1998, he was named the first Irish Professor of Poetry, a three-year appointment to be divided among The Queen’s University in Belfast, Trinity College Dublin, and University College Dublin. He now divides his time between France and West Cork, Ireland. He has received many awards, including the Irish-American Cultural Institute’s Award for Literature, the American Ireland Fund Literary Award for 1995, and a Guggenheim Fellowship. He is the author of numerous collections and an editor of anthologies. He has also published a book of stories, Berkeley’s Telephone and Other Fictions (Lilliput Press, 2000). Wake Forest is the publisher of his last ten volumes, including his most recent, Speech Lessons (2012).
